Looking to develop leadership skills and meet prominent members of the Japanese-American community? The U.S.-Japan Council Emerging Leaders Program has announced its 2012 search for young professionals to attend the U.S.-Japan Council Annual Conference, a forum for education and networking among the highest levels of leadership in business, public policy, academia, journalism and community organizations. Young professionals (ages 18-35) interested in building relations between the two countries can gain access to senior leaders on key U.S.-Japan topics and mentorship opportunities. Application deadline: June 29.
Last call for applicants for the JACL Mike M. Masaoka Congressional Fellowship, named in honor of the longtime JACL leader. Fellows are placed in the D.C. offices of members of Congress for six to eight months, in support of developing leaders for public service.
And with heartfelt thanks, the DC chapter salutes veteran JACL leader and outgoing national Executive Director Floyd Mori (pictured top of page, center). For information on a June 6 celebration, call 202-223-1240 or email email@example.com.
