IIW Presidents and Secretariat Heads

IIW PRESIDENTS AND SECRETARIATS

Over the years since its formation in 1948, membership of IIW has spread around the globe as demonstrated by the countries of origin of its Presidents, representing nations in all regions of the world.

Until 1995, IIW’s operation was supported by two Secretariats provided by Member Societies – a General Secretariat in the UK provided by TWI and a Scientific and Technical Secretariat in France provided by the Institut de Soudure. After that time, a single Secretariat was provided in France until 2019, afterward it has moved to Italy with Services provided by IIS-Istituto Italiano della Saldatura.
