The JAASC board recently met to confirm the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Shinnenkai, our annual New Year’s Celebration for members, member businesses, and Friends of JAASC.
Due to safety concerns with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we do not feel it will be safe to gather in large groups by January. In addition, we do not want to burden our members and member businesses with the task of hosting, sponsoring, and attending a gala event during such an uncertain time and an economic crisis for many.
We are considering holding some sort of online celebration instead. Please watch your emails for an update from Kayla Murdaugh.
We hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season, and we hope to see you later in 2021.
