Annual Dry Bulk and Commodities Conference

On November 19th, 2015 , The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) Canada Branch hosted the second annual Dry Bulk & Commodities Conference to a sold-out crowd against the stunning back drop of the Vancouver Convention Center.  Doubling the attendance from its’ inaugural year and despite today’s challenging shipping markets, the event was well supported by local sponsors and featured top industry representatives speakers. 

 Dena Rantz, ICS Canada Branch chair notes: “It is important for us as a maritime community
the west coast, to provide opportunities and events, which bring
s together our local industry to share knowledge and network.”

The speakers at the conference focused on commodities; including grain, potash, coal, and logs, with an insightful overview of the current dry bulk market and its future outlook.  The conference was followed by the ICS annual Christmas Pub night to thank all those that support the ICS yearround.


 19_f3d36Examination Time

Well done to all of you for writing what may be your first or your last exam towards completing your ICS studies!

Examination time provides the opportunity for young professionals to be curious about this vast and complex industry that they are studying.  And be confident in the fact that the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers is the only internationally recognized professional educational body in the maritime arena which represents all aspects of shipping professionals and can boost more than 100 years of educating experience.

So now, the wait for the February results…

My sincerest congratulations to all for a job well done!
