This year's theme, Growth Through Generosity, focuses on the spreading of values, knowledge, and ideas. It is about the notion of giving--the selfless qualities of our nature-- for a greater cause. These acts of generosity, like a ripple in a pond, reverberate, and form lasting relations we all can take part in. 

JCCI's largest event of the year is set to take place on October 30, 2018 at the New York Hilton Midtown (1335 Avenue of the Americas). We're humbled to have this year's Keynote Speaker to be Michael R. Bloomberg, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist, and Three-term Mayor of NYC; Koki Umeda, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tokio Marine America will be this year's Dinner Chairman; Vincent P. Colman, New York Metro Vice Chairman, PricewaterhouseCoopers will be this year's Dinner Co-Chairman; Eagle on the World awardees this year are Hiroshi Senju, Internationally-Acclaimed Artist, and George Takei, Actor, Author, and Activist.
