We are excited to join Sasakawa USA and USJETAA for its inaugural town hall discussion featuring a conversation between Dr. Sheila Smith (Senior Fellow for Japan Studies, Council of Foreign Relations) and Mr. James â€œJimâ€ Gannon (Executive Director, Japan Center for International Exchange). Dr. Smith and Mr. Gannon will explore trends in people-to-people exchanges between the United States in Japan, as well as introduce recent educational initiatives and programs cultivating the next generation of leaders in U.S.-Japan relations. The event aims to serve the JET alumni in the United States, who represent a network of 30,000 Americans who possess a nuanced understanding and enthusiasm for Japan, by updating them on current issues and developments within U.S.-Japan relations.
The event will be live-streamed, and JETAANY will be hosting a viewing party in NYC. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions online.
When: Tuesday, January 29, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM EST
Where: Japan Local Government Center, 3 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016 (Map)
