Heinz Wipf, SATTA founding member, former President and responsible for international relations, was one of the leading IFATSEA developers of the last 15 years. Ivan Oullette, IFATSEA-Chairman, appreciated the highly value of Heinz Wipf in a speech to the IFATSEA General Assembly in Toulouse. Heinz Wipf was not able to partizipate at this meeting, so his delegate Marco Nanni brought him back the personal IFATSEA award.
