Taiko Conference postponed until 2014

We have just received the following message from the JACCC regarding the next Taiko Conference.

Dear Members of the North American Taiko Community:

With the recent changes in leadership at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC), we have decided to postpone the North American Taiko Conference scheduled for August 2013 to Summer, 2014. We believe that there is not sufficient time to plan and execute the conference in less than a year. Holding the NATC in 2014 will give us ample time to coordinate with the Taiko Community leadership, and put on a well-organized and meaningful conference. The delay in one year would also provide us the adequate lead time to secure funding.

On behalf of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC), thank you for your continued support of and interest in our activities. We look forward to welcoming you to Los Angeles in 2014.

Bill Watanabe
Interim Executive Director
