Printer-friendly versionSend by email

JASGA would like to thank all of its corporate and general members and presenters who got together at our Corporate Sponsor and Individual Member Social Mixer on July 9, 2010.

2010 Corporate & Individual Member Social Mixer     

The Mixer was an opportunity for members of the Society to meet, recognize our Committees and Boards, discuss future plans for the organization, and enjoy two violinists: our Audrey Wozniak and Dr. Risa Ando. Thank you so much for both of your wonderful performance! 
As for the first half of our programs and events in 2010: with our newly reorganized team, we have successfully realized our plans and efforts to promote Japanese cultural and educational programs in Austin and Central Texas. The success of our programs is owing to JASGA's sponsors, members, and supporters who share our vision and mission and who provide us with valuable feedback.
Please see our following programs and events for the first half of the year 2010 and we would like to share our future programs with you:
