**NOTE: The JASA Annual Dinner on February 17, 2022 has been canceled. JASA was eager to hold its annual dinner in-person this year; however, the on-going surge of COVID-19 and the resulting strain on our healthcare systems led to a reassessment of our plans. We have decided not to host our Annual Dinner event in person to prioritize the health and safety of our members, guests, their families, and our communities.
We plan to announce a virtual program in the coming months to celebrate Alabama’s Japanese companies, Japanese culture, and Alabama’s many important connections to Japan. Please stay tuned for more information. We hope that you will be able to join us virtually later this year and look forward to seeing you in person at future events when we can safely resume our program.
Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community. We recognize New and Expanding Japanese Companies across the state, hear from JASA leadership about our community's mission and goals, and honor the recipient of the 2021 Samuel Ullman Award.
Reception and Seated Dinner
Dine and converse with fellow Japanese and American industry and community leaders and enjoy the community of the JASA network. Enjoy our cocktail reception before dinner with drinks, entertainment, and great conversation.
New and Expanding Companies
We will recognize the Alabama Department of Commerce’s 2020 new and expanding Japanese companies to showcase the significant economic impact of Japan on our state and show our appreciation for those who have chosen to call Alabama home.
The Samuel Ullman Award
The Japan-America Society of Alabama initiated the Samuel Ullman Award in 1992 to recognize those who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of the relationship between Japan and Alabama. We will honor the 28th recipient of the award during our celebration.
