The Association of Malaysians in Western Australia Inc (AMWA) was formed in 2005 to bring the Malaysian diaspora in Western Australia together, to celebrate cultural events and to provide networking opportunities. AMWA has always had a strong focus on promoting acceptance of within Australia by actively seeking to be a valued and responsible member of the WA community. It’s a relatively small Association with about 400 members but it punches above its weight. Purely volunteer run, it is managed by a yearly elected Management Committee.
AMWA organises the events that each of main cultural/religious groups celebrate within Malaysia. These paid events, usually a dinner or lunch are open to members and general members of the public. AMWA has at times hosted events to support charitable causes such as the Bushfire Appeal Fund.
AMWA is nothing is without the support of its members and AMWA is always looking for volunteers and ideas to support its mission.
