IWCA Celebrates 15 Years

By MARIA HILL

Every year the international coffee community comes together at the Specialty Coffee Expo. This event brings together professionals from every step of the coffee supply chain to discuss, learn, and make new contacts. 2018 marks a significant milestone for IWCA as we celebrate the organization’s 15th anniversary. As a global network, IWCA connects chapters in 22 countries and supporters across the Americas, Europe, and Asia with a shared vision to connect, empower, and advance #WomenInCoffee. In Seattle we hope you can join us at one of the events and learn more about our partnerships, development programs, and research.

IWCA BREAKFAST: Saturday, April 21, 7:30 AM, WSCC Ballroom 6E
We have refreshed the format of this annual event. This year’s breakfast will feature four interactive conversation areas led by IWCA chapter members and partners. Discussions cover a range of topics including market access, industry relations and emerging markets.

At this year’s SCA Expo more than thirty chapter leaders will be in attendance. Make plans to visit us on the Expo floor, booth 2819 for the opportunity to engage with leaders from across the IWCA Global network and learn more about our continuing partnerships and programs.

CUPPING: Sunday, April 22, 8 AM, Room 615
