    About TJCCC 簡介
    Since its establishment in 2006, the Taiwanese Junior Chamber of Commerce Chicago (TJCCC) had seen bridging the gap between first generation Taiwanese immigrants and the US society, as one of its primary missions. Since then, TJCCC has provided various services to its members around career development, cultural/societal education, and promoting business opportunities. This year during our annual event, we are aiming to further connect the Taiwanese communities with the general public, whether you just moved to the US, or have been living in the US for generations, TJCCC is hoping to establish a network for everyone to communicate and be heard.
