Our Activities

Receptions, Workshops, and Seminar Series

The Chamber regularly hosts panel discussions, lectures, seminars and training programs featuring prominent American and Japanese speakers in the business, political and academic fields. In addition, JCCI holds networking events and social events such as our Annual Music & Dinner Cruise to give our members an opportunity to network with one another.


The U.S. Educators Program

The Community Affairs Committee established the U.S. Educators Program in response to concerns regarding the education of Japanese expatriate children living in the New York metropolitan area. The goals of the program since its inception in 1989 have been twofold: to improve and encourage communication between Japanese students and American educators, and to demonstrate gratitude to the many educators who strive to ensure that expatriate students acculturate and thrive in their American surroundings. Each summer, the program invites educators from New York metropolitan tri-state area schools that have a significant enrollment of Japanese students for a 2-week visit to Japan. Program participants meet with their Japanese counterparts and gain first-hand exposure to Japan's education system.

日本人子弟が多数お世話になっている現地の教育関係者に感謝を示し、併せて日本への理解を深めてもらうため、毎年2週間にわたり、 米人教育関係者および配偶者を日本に招待しています。

Annual Dinner

Each fall, Japanese and American leaders join together to honor individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the U.S.-Japan relationship. Proceeds from the dinner support the Chamber's philanthropic activities via the J.C.C. FUND.

日米財界人の交流親睦とビジネス強化を目指し、毎年秋に1,000名を超える参加者が一堂に会す盛大なチャリティーディナーを開催して います。また、収益金は全て米国社会に還元しています。

Charity Golf Tournament

In 1992, the first Charity Golf Tournament was held as a way for the Chamber to further its commitment to enhancing the New York metropolitan community’s various educational, cultural, and research organizations. Proceeds from each year’s tournament benefit an institution that provides something of value in these categories, fulfilling JCCI’s goals of enriching the experience of Japanese expatriate families living in the tri-state area. Past recipients of tournament proceeds have included The Japanese Educational Institute of New York, The International Center in New York, and the C.V. Starr East Asian Library at Columbia University.


Community Involvement

JCCI takes a leadership role in supporting and helping local communities, with contributions to various humanitarian organizations, governmental, and disaster relief efforts through the Chamber’s J.C.C. Fund. We also take part in the annually held Japan Day Parade, among other local events and outings in the area. It is with your membership that we can continue being a hub for philanthropy and a catalyst for bridging U.S.-Japan relations to fruition.
