Our Mission

The Japan-America Society of Alabama is an established 501c3 international professional networking organization in its thirty fifth year of operation. JASA welcomes members from all business organizations and individuals that have an interest in expanding U.S. business ventures in Japan or wish to promote a congenial climate for Japanese business in Alabama. We have responded to the many changes that have taken place since we were founded in 1989 and have expanded our organization to embrace opportunities for educational and cultural programming in addition to supporting Japanese business. Our ongoing mission is to provide an avenue for both the American and Japanese people of Alabama to promote friendly personal and professional relationships - all to create a better understanding of each other's people and customs. 

JASA is one of thirty eight regional members of the National Association of Japan-America Societies. NAJAS maintains links to a variety of Japan-related websites on business, public affairs, culture and education.

Thank you to our dedicated members.
Your steady support allows us to continue building cultural, educational and professional ties throughout the state.
