Our Programs & Services
Our diverse range of business, cultural and educational oriented programs and projects enables the Society to enrich personal and professional lives of our members and the community at large. Some of our popular events include our Annual Golf Outing. Gala Celebration, and Bonenkai. The JASGC also supports a Young Professionals club, NiCK, which was started by our members.
Members and volunteers are essential to the functioning of the society, and are encouraged to participate in all of our activities. Several benefits are offered to members of the society as well, including discounted event attendance, opportunities for personal and professional growth and friendship, and much more. Anyone can become a member of the JASGC; current members come from all walks of life and nationalities from college students to CEOs, Americans to Japanese.
