Committees & Groups
Our Committee and Groups are the heart and soul of Japan Society of New Orleans programs and events. These are the folks that drive the planning and production of our schedule. We welcome and encourage our members interested in Japanese art, culture and customs to participate on these committees and groups to produce a robust schedule of programs and events.
If you have an interest that our current slate of programs and events does not cover, please feel free to contact any Officer or Board Member and start a conversation to how we can meet your needs.
Please see our list of Committees and Groups and participate!
