Join us and meet professionals from both Japanese and American organizations that play active roles in the Washington DC Metro area. This is a great opportunity for all alumni to make career contacts, catch up with old friends, and help recently-returned JETs adjust back to life in the States! Be sure to bring your business cards (if you have them). Food, wine, beer, and other refreshments will be provided.
