In 2012, due to other organizational priorities, the JACCC decided to delay and ultimately cancel the 2013 North American Taiko Conference. Many members of the community began to express concern for the future of the conference, which has become a major touchpoint for the taiko community in general. Under the guidance of a group of recognized taiko community leaders, and with the blessing of the JACCC leadership, the Taiko Community Alliance (TCA) was formed in October 2012 to help secure the future of the conference and give the taiko community a path to greater responsibility and self-determination about its future.
