The JASG Young Professionals (YP) group was established in October 1996. The YP group is dedicated to creating a friendly, stimulating environment in which young professionals with an interest in international business and U.S.-Japan relations can gather and learn from local experts and from one another. Young Professionals’ meetings are informal, informative and interactive. By making use of the many Asia-related experts who live in or visit the metro-Atlanta area, the JASG Young Professionals organize a variety of interesting, practical programs designed to enhance member knowledge of Japan and U.S.-Japan relations. Young Professional events are for people with an interest in meeting others with a professional or personal interest in the U.S.-Japan relationship.

The Young Professionals is also about having fun. Members are encouraged to get to know one another and Young Professionals’ events always have time for socializing planned into the schedule. In order to maximize interaction, guest speakers are viewed more as discussion leaders than lecturers; questions and open discussion are strongly encouraged. Young Professionals are friendly, supportive, and excellent sources of information on a variety of subjects.

Membership is open to professionals working in companies with an international focus, or those with an interest in the U.S-Japan relationship. Membership dues are forty-five dollars ($45) per year. In addition to frequent YP events, Young Professionals are considered to be individual members of The Japan-America Society of Georgia. Therefore, members will receive The JASG Newsletter, invitations and discounts to all JASG events (special Young Professional discounts are available for some programs), and contact information on fellow Young Professionals. Existing individual members of The JASG need only pay five dollars ($5) to join the Young Professionals.

One of the goals for the Young Professionals is to create programs, which are informative, interesting, and fun. Meetings are held every month to six weeks. Members with an interest in taking a leadership role in the organization are welcome to do so. The Young Professionals would like as many members as possible to become active in the planning and organizing of events. In other words, while Young Professionals expect quality participation, each person is encouraged to find their own level of comfort.
