Some words on the country and the Committee:

IRCOLD is affiliated to the Ministry of Energy of Iran, and is constituted of the supreme council, the executive board and 21 technical committees. The Minister of Energy of Iran is the chairman of the supreme council and the Deputy Minister for Energy Affairs is the deputy chair of the council. The executive board consists of seven members including chairman, secretary-general and 21 technical committees. As stated in the constitution, the members of the executive board consist of representatives of contractors, universities and governmental and non-governmental consultants. Each technical committee comprises of a chairman and a secretary in which the secretary coordinates monthly gatherings/meetings on subjects of engineering concern.

 

IRCOLD has more than 3300 members including academics, managers, and senior experts in different fields related to the water sector. This committee is one of the most significant technical and scientific bodies in Iran which has brought about great reputation for it among national academic societies. Further to holding various technical workshops, IRCOLD has made an effort to hold the Fourth National Conference on Large Dams Construction in Iran. The Iranian National Committee has become an active member (country) of The International Commission on large Dams (ICOLD) in recent years while attending many world sessions and has obtained 25 chairs in different technical committees of ICOLD. During the 66th annual meeting of ICOLD held in New Delhi in 1998, IRCOLD was elected as the Vice President of ICOLD for a period of three years (1998-2001). This committee held the 73rd executive meeting in May 2005 in Tehran which brought new experiences in fields related to dam construction to the country. In the last decades, Iran has made remarkable efforts in different fields of dam construction while respecting professional ethics with least harm to the environment to achieve sustainable development and common wealth of the nation and the world as a whole. This demonstrates that it has become a prominent member of the industrial world.
