IWCA’s strategy of “Success through Localization” is based upon the formation of chapters in both coffee producing and consuming countries. These chapters form independent organizations, following the laws of their own countries. They are invited to join the IWCA as member chapters, allowing them to work with IWCA resources to achieve common goals to promote and recognize women working in the coffee industry. As part of the “Success through Localization” strategy, IWCA chapters continue to be established around the world. As awareness of the IWCA and its work grows, women from more countries contact the organization for guidance on how to become an affiliated chapter.

- Producer Country Chapters (PCC)
Producer Country Chapters are alliances of women in the coffee sector headquartered in producer countries (countries of origin). The country is classified as a producer country when a majority of local coffee industry activities include growing, producing, milling, exporting, and other operations at the beginning of the supply chain. Producing countries are often located within Central America, South America, Africa, and Indonesia, but are not limited to these areas.
- Consumer Country Chapters (CCC)
Consumer Country Chapters are alliances of women in the coffee sector headquartered in consumer countries like the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. The country is classified as a consumer country when a majority of local coffee industry activities include importing, distributing, roasting, and retailing.
Please contact the Chapter Relations Committee if you are interested in forming a chapter or finding out how to contact a chapter in your area.
