About Commissions

Each WITFOR event addresses eight specific topics / areas. The content for these topics is handled by eight commissions.

You are invited to contact the chair / vice-chair(s) of the commission(s) of your interest and discuss the best way you can get involved.For contact details see the info for each separate commission.
