Indiana Association of Chinese Americans, Inc(IACA). is a State registered not-for-profit organization established in 1973. IACA is not affiliated with any religious or political organization. The main goals and objectives of IACA are:
- To foster constructive citizenship on the part of Chinese Americans in the State of Indiana, and the nation.
- To cultivate the understanding and the appreciation of both American and Chinese cultural heritages.
- To enrich the Indiana society with Chinese American contributions.
- To improve the overall well being of Chinese Americans in Indiana.
IACA was originally established in 1973 as Indianapolis Association of Chinese Americans, Inc. and in 1999, it was renamed to Indiana Association of Chinese Americans, Inc. to encompass a larger membership around the states. In the early ’70s, a group of local Chinese Americans met once a month for lunch to share their everyday experiences and to lead support for each other and their families. The popularity of this monthly luncheon continued to grow and the need for an organization to provide social activities and a variety of services was inevitable. In November 1973, the founding members filed the IACA constitution with the State. Officers for the following years were elected and IACA was born.
Through the years, most of the social activities provided to our membership were focused on the celebration of Chinese culture and traditions such as Chinese New Year and other festivals, in an attempt to keep alive our heritage and to pass them on to the next generation and beyond. Friends and other organizations have been invited to these gatherings to share and celebrate our cultural heritage and it has proven to be very successful.
IACA has participated in countless community cultural projects and educational outreach programs. IACA has long established its presence in the annual International Festival since 1976 and has won awards for its cultural displays. Our ‘Lion Dance’ team is well recognized in our cultural community. IACA has collaborated with the International Center of Indianapolis and other local professional organizations in co-sponsoring cultural exhibitions, concerts and recent performances from the Inner Mongolian Dance Troupe and the Beijing Orchestra. IACA participates in programs at the Children’s Museum, providing cultural materials, speakers to local schools and colleges. Through corporate sponsorship, scholarships were awarded to our qualified IACA youths from the annual Telamon High School Scholarship Program. IACA has also participated in the USA Bicentennial Anniversary celebration and in establishing a Sister City with Taipei, Taiwan, and a Sister State with Zhejiang Province, China.
IACA currently publishes a quarterly newsletter to communicate information and progresses to our members, an annual membership directory that serves as a tool for our members to exchange information and network. IACA has been working diligently and continuously fine-tuning its services and programs to meet the needs of our growing and changing community.
Sister Cities were created to promote peace through people-to-people relationships. They offer the flexibility to allow connections to form between communities that are mutually beneficial and take on issues that are most relevant to the partners.
Evolved from Columbus Chinese Association-Taiwan(CCA-Taiwan), a non-profit organization since 1990s, in 2000, a group of people from both Taiwan and China formed Columbus Chinese School(CCLS) which attracted broad community support. The board members of CCA–Taiwan then decided to change the name of the organization to Columbus Chinese Association(CCA) to support the CCLS as well as to include all overseas Chinese. This move gained great support from the Chinese community and glued the people and resources in a better way.
The mission of CCA is to offer and promote Chinese Language and Culture to the local community of Columbus, Indiana.

每个留学生都有紧张的学业和对前途的紧凑计划。但是，每年都需要，也有，部份同学站出来担任联谊会执委会和各个部门干事，义务为大家服务。他们对华人社区的贡献带动起更多同学，组织起大家需要的活动。可以说，普渡联谊会是由每年轮换的一群义务服务者运行着的。 (PUCSSA志愿者注册Email: email@example.com)
虽然这群义务服务者的出现主要是靠志愿而不是纯粹由选举产生，大家的投票却能成为一种信任和监督。每年，经大家提名或自我推荐下一届执委会干事候选 人，由当届执委会与候选人集体商量组阁方案，并交全体会员投票产生，任期一年。主席不能连任。部门干事由执委会确定。执委会不是行政，他们靠自己的服务、 动员和协调来组织起各部门干事和广大会员。执委会内实行决策民主，各有分工，主席协调。联谊会的工作量和活动内容完全取决于该届参与同学的多少、他们的决 策以及他们的时间和精力。

印城华人基督教会，(Chinese community church), 116th and Keystone in Carmel.
1968年間，一群基督徒在神的引導下，於印城開始查經班的工作。最先，他們使用North Minister Presbyterian教堂聚會並且於1973年11月定名為「印城華人教會」；在1974年秋改借Meridian Street Methodist教堂聚會，最後在1982年買下座落在56街和Broadway交接口的一所教堂，從此才正式擁有屬於自己的聚會場所。近年來由於人數的增長和使用空間的不足，於1999年6月神恩待我們，使教會得以搬遷並買下現址。
