ICS Executive Council Election



We are very pleased to announce that Dena Ranz, Chair of the Canada Branch, has been elected to the ICS Executive Council.


ICS on LinkedIn

Based on members’ feedback we have now established an Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Members Only LinkedIn group.

This is a closed group exclusively for members and fellows of the Institute, including retired and life members. Once a member has paid their annual membership subscription fee, we will send them an invitation to join the group.

Some members may have set up their LinkedIn profile using a different email address than the one that they have registered with the Institute. In these cases we will endeavour to contact the member and ask for the LinkedIn email address so we can send them an invitation.

It is not compulsory for members to join the LinkedIn group.

However, by joining the group it will help validate the member’s current membership of the Institute as membership of the group will be displayed on the member’s profile. It will allow members to network easily with other members.

Members are encouraged to comment and offer insights on current shipping industry news and issues as well as Institute matters. We will be developing the other LinkedIn group options in the near future.

Members who lapse and do not pay their annual membership subscription fees will be removed from the group.


Congratulations to those candidates that have completed their exam requirement with the Institute.

The next step will be to complete the membership application form available on this page, following the instructions detailed on the form. The deadline for receipt of membership applications will be 11th September 2015, to be included in the next round of elections.

If you have any queries concerning your membership application, please email membership@ics.org.uk or call the office on +44 (0) 207 623 1111.
