2019 marks a very special occasion for the American Welding Society -
it's the 100th birthday!
AWS Centennial celebration belongs to all the men and women who've been instrumental to the Society's growth. 100 years ago, AWS emerged during World Was 1 at the behest of President Woodrow Wilson to help serve a national need. The enduring mission "to advance the science and art of welding" was there at their inception in 1919 and AWS dedication to help welding professionals across the globe protect and improve lives remains just as strong today as it was then.
