Summary

The U.S.-Japan Council (U.S. & Japan), is pleased to present the 2019 USJC Annual Conference, to be held from November 4 to 5 in Los Angeles, California. Under the theme "Bold Ideas, Bolder Leadership: The Next Stage of U.S.-Japan Relations," we will highlight diverse leaders and leadership styles that transform bold ideas into reality and discuss forward-thinking ideas across several industries to showcase the potential for further U.S.-Japan collaboration.

As the 10th anniversary conference since the founding of USJC, this event will also celebrate USJC's accomplishments over the past decade in developing and connecting diverse leaders to create a stronger U.S.-Japan relationship. We will also be launching the first national pilot program of the U.S.-Japan Council Leadership Institute. These optional seminars will provide hands-on skills training and professional development opportunities to conference attendees.

And in the same complex just prior to the conference (Nov. 1-3), the Japan America Society of Southern California is presenting Japan Cuts Hollywood, a film festival celebrating Japanese cinema.
