In the fall of 2018, a group of scholars from various communication and journalism organizations from the Asia-Pacific region met in China to discuss the possibility of working together. Recognizing that international cooperation between these various organizations could facilitate training of journalists and scholars internationally and promote best practices throughout the region, these scholars suggested creating an alliance. Thus, the Asia-Pacific Communication Alliance (APCA) was born.
Rather than an organization of individual scholars, APCA is an organization of organizations.
APCA plans to conduct events on a regular basis and encourages international collaborations and cooperation. In addition, APCA member organizations may use the upcoming events section of this website to let others know about their respective conferences and events, enabling more cross-cultural sharing of information.
