Attention: Change in Membership Service Provider

It is exciting to announce that, starting April 1, 2019, Ayumi Corp., Ltd., will assume the role of the JAAS association office in place of Gakkyokai Support Center, which will go out of business at the end of March. We would like you to keep in mind a few things regarding the handling of membership business during and after the transition, and hope that it would not cause too much trouble. Please check back this page often during the transition, as new information may be posted.

1. Contacting the JAAS office before April
Gakkyokai Support Center will continue to operate as the association office until the end of March, and all membership inquiries and requests should be directed at  the Center. To ensure smooth transition, however, please make sure to notify by email at if you wish to mail any document, such as membership application forms, to the office.

2. New JAAS office contact information
Email: (no change)
Postal address:
The Japanese Assocation for American Studies
c/o Ayumi Corporation, Ltd.
Nichiei Building Suite 703A, Tosabori 1-4-8, Nishi-ku, Osaka-shi
Osaka 550-0001, Japan

3. Payment of accrued membership dues
Due to the transfer, the association will close its current Japan Postal Bank account and open a new one. If you have not paid the 2018 membership fee, please do so by March 22. The postal bank ATM payment form sent from the JAAS office could not be used after the above date.
Those members who have paid their dues to the association's postal bank account will receive a new ATM payment form for the 2019 membership fee in April, with the new issue of the JAAS newsletter. The rest of you who are on the automatic bank transfer service will not be affected by the change; the membership fee will be deducted from your account in June.

Please feel free to contact the association's General Affairs Committee in charge of the transition at if you have any questions or concerns.

Best Wishes,

JAAS Executive Board of Directors
