Memorandum of Association

In 1983 Dr. Suzuki delegated responsibility to the German Suzuki Association (our former name was Deutsches Suzuki Institut). Please see the valid document, the Memorandum of Association, signed by Dr. Suzuki. It was written in German by Waltraud Suzuki.

Here you find the English translation:
