Who we are
BBIP is managed by a voluntary Board elected at our Annual General Meeting every February. Our members, including our Board members, are made up of people from all walks of life and professions, share a common interest in Indonesian culture, language, people and progress and are keen to promote closer ties and better understandings between Australians and Indonesians. Please join us!
