A Message from the Chairman, November 2015

The Holidays are right around the corner, and for many, it is a season of giving. If you need some gift ideas for jugglers that you know, check out the participating vendors in our Vendor Discount Program for a diverse selection of items at discounted rates for IJA members.

If you do your holiday shopping online, a great way to support the IJA is to shop through Amazon Smile. Simply select the International Jugglers’ Association as your supported charity before you make your purchase, and Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase price to the IJA, at no cost to you.

In IJA video news, the final portion of our 2013 Festival Video has been added to our Members Exclusive Video library. Expect more great exclusive videos coming soon!

As a reminder, nominations are still open for a few more weeks for our 2016 honorary awards. Drop the awards committee a line if you have someone you would like to nominate. Of important note, starting with 2016 and going forward, the Excellence in Education Award is now included as an award that is eligible for nominations through the awards committee (previously it was a separate entity).

Juggle on,
Nathan Wakefield
IJA Chairman
