A Message from the Chairman, October 2015

Things are going well with the planning of next year’s festival! In addition to the free brunch Tuesday through Saturday and over $35,000 in prize money for the stage championships, expect some more big announcements in the coming months.

 Speaking of the festival, we have opened up our nominations for 2016’s honorary awards! To find out more about the honorary awards, see the award descriptions and past winners. Do you know of someone who you feel would be a good fit for one of these awards? Let the Awards Committee know who they are, and why you are nominating them. Don’t be shy, let your voice be heard!

The IJA has also recently voted in our 2015-2016 term officers. There is a lot of work that goes into the IJA’s festival, programs and operations. Without the dedication of all the wonderful individuals that volunteer their time and energy, the IJA wouldn’t exist. If you would like to help out, feel free to drop us a line.

Juggle on,

Nathan Wakefield
IJA Chairman
