Shinichi Miyawaki ('86A), Japan, Regional Representative: Asia

Japan Alumni Club, there are about 10 volunteer alumni as a management team (Sewayakukai) and we meet once a month to talk about the alumni activities in Japan. In the May meeting, we had a special guest from Denver. Paul Whitaker came to Japan for a business meeting with potential sponsors and supporters. Paul always enjoys meeting with local alumni when he travels. We planned the dinner meeting with Paul. Although it was a day in the middle of the week, some alumni came from outside of Tokyo. One alumna and Paul met each other after almost 30 years. Our discussion continued for several hours, but it was not enough. Japanese alumni want to have UWP back to Japan! We expect the development in the future.
