WECC is operated by an international network of volunteers. It has no budget or staff, but does have wonderful sponsors that provide in-kind support in terms of communications infrastructure and prizes for teams.


Five committees cooperate to promote the competition, develop the evaluation case, administer team applications, set up the judging process, and obtain prizes for the winning teams.

A coordinating committee, comprised of a chair and the leads from the five committees, ensures a smooth roll-out of the competition.

An executive committee provides oversight, advice and quality control.

Current volunteers

Fifteen WECC Volunteers in countries around the world are working on the 2021 competition.
