I am writing today about an exciting opportunity for American and Japanese students at your school to participate in the 2016 TOMODACHI Daiwa House Student Leadership Conference III held in Washington, D.C. October 20th-23rd.
The theme of the conference is "Exploring U.S.-Japan Relations in the Nation’s Capital: Leadership, Legacy, Politics and Policy." We are looking for enthusiastic undergraduate/graduate American and Japanese students who have interests in U.S.-Japan relations, Japanese or American culture, and/or want to meet peers with similar interests. It is an opportunity for leadership training, networking, to learn about Japanese and Japanese-American contributions on a national level, and to think about ways they, as students, might contribute to strengthening the U.S.-Japan relationship in the present and future.
There is no cost to students to participate! Transportation to and from the conference, as well as food and accommodations will be provided to all students free of charge. Attached is our recruitment packet, with an invitation letter from our President, Irene Hirano Inouye, a flyer about the conference to share with students on your campus, as well as information about the application. This is an amazing opportunity and an excellent chance to share ideas and be part of the conversation.
