WoCoVA has a compact organizational structure, which improves decision-making. There are 2 international committees, the Scientific Committee and the Global Committee, both with its own remit.

Scientific Committee

The main responsibility of the Scientific Committee is the selection of topics and speakers for the biennial WoCoVA congresses. Its members have extensive knowledge and experience in the field of vascular access. The chair of the Scientific Committee is Mauro Pittiruti (IT).

The Global committee is a permanent group of representatives of countries from all over the world and is chaired by Josie Stone (US). They act as an intermediate between WoCoVA and everyone involved in the field of VA in their country, to further improve the VA knowledge and clinical practice. WoCoVA is also striving to establish and support national vascular access societies in all countries of the world, Global Committee members play an important role in executing this.
