EWCA - Jakarta
Region :  Southeast Asia
City :   Jakarta
Country:  Indonesia



Established in 1980, the EWCA-Indonesia chapter currently maintains a 1000 alumni membership.

There are three branches to EWCA-Indonesia Chapter: Bali, Jakarta, and Aceh. The Jakarta serves as the core leadership chapter. However, each has an EWCA chapter leader and is recognized by the EWC Associates Office and EWCA. The three work closely together to ensure optimum success for the EWCA in Indonesia.


As a result of good leadership, collaboration, and planning, EWCA-Indonesia has organized some of the EWCA's most successful international and regional conferences. In 1988, EWCA-Bali hosted the EWCA International Conference, which drew over 600 alumni from around the world to participate. In addition, an EWCA Regional Conference was hosted by EWCA-Yogjakarta in 1989 which focused on resource issues and brought over 100 participants from the region.


The members of EWCA-Indonesia have sent representatives to participate in the EWCA International Conferences held in the U.S.(1985), Thailand (1991), India (1997); and Manila (1999), as well as Honolulu (2000).
