Get Involved

Volunteer for BBIP

You have skills. You have talents. You are a BBIP member. So, volunteer to apply your skills and talents in supporting programs and projects such as the Perth Indonesian Film Festival, the Michael J in OZ schools concerts and the Indonesian culture and language classes. Tell us how you want to be involved.

Join the  BBIP board to be involved in directing the activities of BBIP, deciding which projects and programs are priorities and where funding will be directed. Board members are elected at the annual general meeting in February.

Supporter and Advocate

Professor David Hill, AM
Emeritus Professor of Southeast Asian Studies

Balai Bahasa Indonesia Perth is exactly the kind of collaboration that the Indonesian government should – and does – support.
I urge all of you with an interest in Indonesia to consider putting your time and effort into continuing the success of BBIP by playing a role in its development, either as a committee member, supporter, or simply as a continuing student.

What would we do without Kellie and Lorna? They can be relied on always to assist with and promote BBIP activities and their smiles spread goodwill wherever they go.
