Aloha HJJCC Members!

It is my honor to serve as the 70th President of the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce.

Since our organization’s founding in 1949, we continue to operate with a mission of fostering young leaders through professional development, community service, and the promotion of Japanese culture and Japanese-American heritage.

This year we will offer a range of exciting events for our membership and the public, including mixers, our Young Business Roundtable series, cultural activities, and community service projects. Our International Relations committee will maintain our strong ties with our sister Jaycee chapters in Japan, including a Goodwill Tour to Japan in October. The Cherry Blossom Festival enters its 68th year, and it will be the 9th year for our annual Nijikai fundraiser.

As we enter the 70th year of the HJJCC, I would like to extend our thanks to the many other organizations in the local Japanese-American community for their friendship and support.

Mahalo to the outgoing and incoming Board of Directors, volunteers who selflessly give their time, energy and commitment to this organization.

 To our members, thank you for all your contributions to the HJJCC. I look forward to seeing you at this year’s events!

 Warm regards,

Kristine Wada, 70th HJJCC President
