Aloha HJJCC Members!

It was truly an honor to be recently installed as the 68th President of the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce and am very anxious and excited to lead this great organization for the upcoming year.

From the membership networking events, community service projects, Goodwill Tour and Sister Chapter hosting with our International Relations, Young Business Roundtable forums, Nijikai fundraisers and Cherry Blossom Festival committee involvement, I have grown both personally and professionally because of the opportunities this great organization provides to its members and want to ensure the HJJCC continues this tradition. We also look to form and strengthen partnerships with other organizations in our community to provide new cultural, community service and networking events to give an added benefit to our members. This is definitely not going to be an easy task, but I am confident and grateful that the incoming Board of Directors will be joining me in leading this great organization for the upcoming year.

The HJJCC would not be what it is today without the time, effort, commitment and hard work shown by all of its volunteer members so a special thank you is needed for the outgoing Board of Directors who have made numerous sacrifices in the success of the HJJCC over the past year.  It is a very exciting time to be a member of the HJJCC and I hope all of you are able to take advantage of the fun year ahead. Look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Thank you very much. Arigatoo Gozaimasu

George Takase, 68th HJJCC President
