A Message from the Chairman, January 2016

A new year is upon us, and we’ve got some great things coming up for 2016!  We already have nearly the full year’s lineup solid for our highly successful Tricks of the Month videos. There are some great contributors slated for this year.  On top of that, we’ve started a new video series to complement our Tricks of the Month, where each contributor is profiled in a video interview.

At our last Board Meeting, we approved new International Representatives. Jorge Vilchis is our new Mexico Representative, Gino Crovetto Pellegrin is our Peru Representative, Santi Durango is our Columbia Representative, and Geovanni Zamora Granados is our Central America Representative.

In other IJA political news, Warren Hammond has resigned from the IJA Board of Directors.  We wish Warren all the best in his future endeavors.

Since the new year, we’ve kicked our 2016 festival preparations into high gear.  Our Facebook event page is now live! Expect major announcements, including special guests in the coming weeks.

Juggle on,
Nathan Wakefield
IJA Chairman
