Back then, the International Desalination Association (IDA) added AEDyR to its member list in recognition of its technological development and its desalination track record. Importantly, AEDyR is one of the world´s few non-regional, country-specific desalination associations.
Spain’s large Engineering Companies performed an outstanding role at that point, and with the collaboration of a number of individuals, they helped our association take its first steps forward.
At the beginning, the board of directors was made of only nine members, this number rose to 11, reaching 15 members in 2007 as the result of the increase of associate memberships.
The Events Committee is responsible for all events developed by AEDyR, such as the biennial Congress, Seminars, Conferences, etc. Right now it is not as developed as the other committees, although it is actually deeply focused on the Congress, which we believe must be a reference for all.
