My name is Patrick Hall, conference coordinator for the U.S.-Japan Council. I am writing today about an exciting opportunity for American and Japanese students at your school to participate in the 2017 TOMODACHI Daiwa House Student Leadership Conference IV held in Boston, MA. April 7th-9th.
The theme of the conference is “Navigating the Past, Charting the Future: Innovation and Engagement in U.S.-Japan Relations”. 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 and 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 (both in English and Japanese) to share with students on your campus, as well as information about the application process.
The Deadline For All Applications is Monday, February 20th
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me anytime. I can be reached on my cell phone at (205) 566-3089 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you soon and thank you in advance for spreading the word about this amazing opportunity.
