Welcome to the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce
About the HJJCC
The Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1949 by 45 young nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans). The chapter was created to fill a void left in the American Japanese community after WWII. The organization was founded on trying to build good citizenship among our young Japanese-Americans and to provide them with a medium of training for participation in worthwhile community-wide civic projects.
The HJJCC is open to men and women of any ethnicity from ages 21 through 39. Membership provides the opportunity to:
- Develop personal and professional skills.
- Establish business contacts and professional networks.
- Participate in community service projects and social activities.
- Learn about Japanese-American culture and heritage through various programs and the Cherry Blossom Festival.
For questions or further information, please call 949-2255 or send an email to email@example.com.
HJJCC Christmas Mixer & Food Drive 12/12/13
Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving weekend with family and friends! Just a reminder that our Mixer & Food Drive is coming up on Thursday Dec 12 at Nocturna Lounge. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Dec. 6th to give us an estimated headcount. If you are undecided past the deadline, you are still welcome to come. Free admission by bringing a minimum of 2 canned goods. This is a canned food drive so feel free to bring more than 2 if you need to clean out your pantry before 2014. All canned goods will go to the Hawaii Food Bank.
One change to the initial email that went out. Instead of raffle prizes, we decided to give all members who attend the mixer a $5 discount on their next membership renewal. We will also give a $5 membership discount to non-members attending the event that decide to join the chamber before February. If you have friends or colleagues that are interested in joining, please let them know. There will be a sign-in sheet at the entrance of Nocturna Lounge, so please make sure you fill out that out to receive your discount.
Hope to see you there!
