U.S. Participation

The United States, a member of PIANC since 1902, provides an annual appropriation for the support and maintenance of the organization. This includes an annual subvention to PIANC and payment of a portion of the travel expenses of officially appointed U.S. delegates (Commissioners) to meetings of the Annual General Assembly and Congresses.

The U.S. Section is administered by law under the auspices of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). It is located at the Institute for Water Resources (IWR) National Capital Region Humphreys Engineer Center facility. The U.S. Section is composed of dues-paying individual and corporate members.

The United States National Commission constitutes the governing body of the U.S. Section. The U.S. Section is represented by Principal and Co-Principal Members of the Commissions managing technical working group activities. The U.S. Section produces a bi-monthly e-newsletter, PIANC Bulletin, containing U.S. Section information and industry news.
