The Japanese American Citizens League announced Feb. 17 that Craig Ishii, its Pacific Southwest (PSW) regional director, will be leaving the organization as of April 30 of this year.
“We support his decision and know that he will become an asset to whatever kind of organization that will be fortunate enough to have him on board,” the organization said in a statement.
“He has shown vision and commitment to the JACL and the Japanese American community. He has been a rare talent who has gained the respect of young and old alike. He is a 21st century pioneer in the mold and character of the founding fathers of the JACL.”
The JACL will begin the search for a new PSW regional director for the PSW District, which has its office in Los Angeles.
