BACKGROUND

PERMIAS Congress 2013 | MAY 25-26,2013

Persatuan Mahasiswa Indonesia di Amerika Serikat (PERMIAS) or the Association of the Indonesian Students in the United States (U.S.) was founded on December 24, 1961 in Washington, D.C. PERMIAS aims to unite Indonesian university students across the U.S. through regional chapters and nationally through the PERMIAS National Congress. Regional PERMIAS chapters typically host local events such as cultural exhibitions, sports competitions, and social outreach events. Occasionally, neighboring chapters would collaborate to hold larger events. Representatives from regional PERMIAS chapters also meet for national events such as PERMIAS National Congress, the first Congress of Indonesian Diaspora, and other seminars. Many PERMIAS alumni have become leaders in their fields, whether in public sector, private sector, or civil society. When PERMIAS was established in 1961, PERMIAS founders wished that the National Congress would be held every two to three years in order to maintain the organization’s unity, as well as to facilitate the organization in adapting to members’ evolving aspirations and challenges of the era. PERMIAS representatives regularly met from 1961 to 1973. However, the National Congress did not take place between 1973 and 1986 due to regional chapters’ financial issues. The National Congress was regularly held again from 1986 to 1999 reflecting the steady increase in the Indonesians students’ population in the U.S. throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Unfortunately, the Indonesian students’ population in the U.S. had declined since the 1998/1999 academic year due to the political and economic crises in Indonesia, as well as the implementation of stricter U.S. immigration policies. The National Congress therefore had not been taking place as members faced financial and personnel issues. Although the current number of Indonesian students in the U.S. is still far from the number when it was at its peak (7,131 students in 2011/2012 academic year in comparison to 13,282 in 1997/1998), the trend is going towards a positive direction as the current number of Indonesian students increased by 2.7% from the previous academic year1.The U.S.-Indonesia Comprehensive Partnership signed in 2010 contributes to this growth, as both governments realize the importance of improving educational exchanges between the two countries. We, PERMIAS from our respective chapters, collaboratively hope to use this momentum to reinstate and maintain the National Congress and PERMIAS National chapter. |9
