JCCI's 32nd Annual Dinner:
JCCI celebrated its 32nd Annual Dinner on November 10, 2016 at the New York Hilton Midtown. The roughly 900 guests in attendance celebrated the bright and hopeful future of the U.S. - Japan partnership. The diverse array of relationships now existing between our nations means our destinies have never been more intertwined. The event reaffirmed just how much our future success will surely come as result of us, "Advancing Together." Among the evening's highlights were an awards presentation, speeches on a broad range of topics in business, the arts, and international politics - and of course exquisite food. The funds raised will benefit the J.C.C. Fund, which supports local non-profits helping with community enhancement, education, and U.S.-Japan relations.
JCCI would like to express its deep appreciation to all participants, and give a special thank you to the night's very generous key people:
Keynote Speaker: Mr. Raymond L. Conner, Vice Chairman, The Boeing Company; President & CEO, Boeing Commercial Airplanes
JCCI’s U.S. Educators Program
This past summer JCCI proudly sent its 27th delegation of dedicated teachers, administrators, and guests to Japan through the US Educators Program. The initiative has been an important tool for helping American educators better serve their students and Tri-State area Japanese communities. It also serves as a unique way to promote and share the culture of both countries. From July 3rd to July 17th, the group toured Japan, visited several different schools, and met with officials from the Japan Overseas Educational Services. The itinerary included stops in Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and a home stay experience in Mihama. In order to experience the uniqueness of Japanese culture, they visited museums, shrines, temples, and memorials. Please click here to see some photos from the trip.
Best wishes to all the great Educators!
