Maybe Time That Michael Start Talking To Members?

A Message From Michael Benner- Supporting Our Club

Dear Member,

This is a year of milestones for the Club. After marking the 10th anniversary of our Azabudai home last month, we open the doors of Tokyo American Club Nihonbashi, our first-ever satellite facility, next month.

These historic moments follow a year of unprecedented challenges for the Club. But throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have put the safety of Members and Club staff first.

By following government guidance and introducing rigorous safety measures (in combination with the Club’s state-of-the-art ventilation and sanitizing systems), we have created an environment in which Members can relax and feel safe.

However, Member usage of the Club has declined, and spending in the dining outlets has decreased significantly. To encourage everyone to visit the Club more frequently, and dine and spend at the Club, let me share some good news:

At its most recent meeting, The Board of Governors eased the guest policy to help you further enjoy the Club.

From March 1, Members’ guests will be able to use the Guest Studios and visit Rainbow Café and Café Med seven days a week. In addition, the monthly limit of two visits per guest will be increased to eight visits. The Board will periodically review these changes.

Last week saw the launch of a brand-new food delivery service. This is the latest example of our adaption to shifting Member needs and follows the introduction of last year’s takeout service, the conversion of CHOP into an all-day lounge, the opening of the Guest Studios as a daytime WFH alternative, and the creation of hybrid meeting packages and numerous online cultural and fitness classes.

All of these services and programs offer Members more opportunities to connect with one another. I encourage you to make use of all that the Club has to offer.

With your support, I strongly believe that we can ensure that our community continues to thrive.

Stay safe.

Michael Benner
Representative Governor
Tokyo American Club

  1. The point is that TAC is our Club. We need to support it. And with the new rules around guests, accessible times, and monthly frequency – well, you have the opportunity to do just that.
    Oh, and Nihonbashi will open on 31 March. All Azubudai members will have full access … join me at our fantastic new cocktail bar!
