JACL hosts 2012 national convention at Hyatt Regency Bellevue

The Japanese American Citizen League (JACL) is hosting its 2012 national convention in the Hyatt Regency Bellevue from July 5 to 8. The event is sponsored by the Seattle chapter with support from the Lake Washington and Puyallup Valley Chapters. The theme of the convention, “Inform, Transform, Perform: Embracing JACL in an era of transformation,” recognizes the changing face of the JACL and the challenges it faces to be relevant in the 21st century. JACL’s national youth and student council will also meet at the convention. A health and wellness fair focusing on diabetes will provide information related to education, prevention, and “living well.” Co-sponsored by Nikkei Concerns and the American Diabetes Association, the fair will include health screenings, provide strategies for living well, eating healthy, and staying active.
