The process of becoming a chapter takes several steps that start with casual socialization and moves into the establishment of officers, bylaws, conducting needs assessments, strategic planning and legalization. In some countries this process can take several years depending on available resources. IWCA believes in success through localization where national chapters are comprised of women and men representing the coffee supply chain. Becoming a legal entity allows the organization to have a voice in their country.
