JASGC Annual Meeting & Shinnenkai

JASGC 年次会合&新年会

(An event exclusively for our members. 
If you are not already a member
, join today!)

2019 is the Year of the Boar 

Come celebrate with us!  This is a members-only* event with a dual purpose -- to provide a report to our members regarding the overall status, accomplishments, and financial health of the Society, and to celebrate the start of the new year.  We will also be introducing new JASGC Board members, officers, and new JASGC members.

*If your company, school, or organization is a JASGC member, you are automatically a member. 


Co-hosted by the JASGC and Blue & Co at their downtown Cincinnati location (with free, on-site parking).
This year’s event will include a special raffle
, featuring several bottles of wine donated from a private collection from an expat who did not take her collection back to her home country.

JASGCBlueSponsored By:Co(シンシナティのダウンタウン、無料の敷地内駐車場あり)の共催で行われ、今年のイベントでは、ワインがスペシャルラッフルとして登場します。プライベートコレクションを母国に持って帰ることが出来ずに帰国した駐在員の方が、日米協会に寄付してくださったものです。

Per JASGC custom, our corporate, small business and non-profit members are invited to display their information (brochures, logo items, banners, etc.) during the event.  (Please register separately for a display table, as space is limited.)

例年通り、当協会のビジネスメンバー、非営利団体のメンバーは、イベント中に情報(パンフレット、ロゴアイテム、バナーなど)の展示をしていただけます。 (スペースに限りがあるため、ディスプレイテーブル用に別途登録をお願いいたします。
