Membership entitles a person to receive a newsletter, the membership directory and exclusive attendance or a discount at some activities. Most activities are conducted in English. At present, membership fees are 200,000 rupiah per year and the year runs from September 1 to August 31. You can register online. Go to the Membership Tab and click on membership form. Payment can be made at an event.
Our purpose is to encourage a sense of community as Canadian citizens in Jakarta, to offer social activities for the Canadian community, to provide support for newcomers and to contribute to social development needs in Indonesia.
There is a whole host of activities that are planned from month to month. We also offer a variety of groups that you can get involved with such as the Social Development group and groups that organize tours, luncheons/dinners and bazaars to name a few. We are always open to popular new event suggestions as long as we have volunteers to help us organize them.
Monthly Coffee Mornings
These meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month, from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. Both members and non-members are welcome, with a small fee charged to non-members. Often coffee mornings are organized at a member's house. Vendors may be invited to display goods of interest to our members, or guest speakers present to share tips or travel information. Raffle prizes are arranged, with the proceeds going to support CWA's Social Development projects. From time to time, coffee mornings take place at coffee shops. Activities are announced at coffee mornings as well as by email and on the website. Coffee mornings are a great place to meet people, discuss upcoming events and a perfect place to ask questions about expatriate life in Jakarta.
