As everyone works to prioritize the health and safety of our communities, as well as being requested by facilities that host our events, we’ve made the decision to host this event online, via Zoom, in response to COVID-19.
At this members-only gathering, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from members of our board of directors, listen to the results of the board election, learn more about the Japan Society and get information about the upcoming 10th Annual Inovation Award Symposium.
Our Annual General Members Meeting is complimentary for all JSNC members. New and returning members are encouraged to register and attend! If you are not sure of your membership status, please ask our admin.
Zoom meeting information will be available closer to the event.
** Due to the now online-nature of the event, we will no longer be able to provide a tasting of Suntory whiskeys.
