Sixty-one years ago, representatives from 42 anesthesiology societies gathered in Scheveningen, in the Netherlands, for the first World Congress of Anaesthesiologists (WCA). The World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) was incorporated at that time, planning to hold four yearly Congresses at venues around the world. Today, the WFSA is proud to count more than 135 societies as members, covering some 140 countries across the globe.
ASA is the single largest member national society represented in the WFSA. Consistent with this leadership position, many ASA members serve the WFSA in varying capacities on its board as well as through its committees.
