ICS Canada Branch – 2016/17 Chair Report

It is always fulfilling to report upon a successful year and I’m pleased to say that this year is no different!  The Canada Branch plays an important role within our local maritime communities but with an industry still feeling the effects of difficult days, it is more important than ever for our branch to show the value of membership, when and where we can.

I am pleased to report that the Canada Branch is again in excellent financial standing.   2016/17 saw a profit of $16,000; with a balance of more than $44,000.  An upcoming change with financial institutions will allow us to further clarify and enhance our internal banking processes.  Thanks to Gabriela Klongova and Karl Wang for their continued financial leadership.

The Canada Branch offered November and May examinations in Vancouver and Montreal.  This year was supported by an internationally coordinated Education Open night in September and February to inform and engage potential students.   Although the outreach saw a small turn out in numbers, it proved to be the quality of students that mattered, with many registering for exams.  Montreal continued to support local students with exam study sessions covering topics such as; Port Agency, Ship Sale and Purchase, Dry Cargo Chartering, Legal Principles of Shipping & Shipping Law and Ship Operations & Management…   Read full Report here

ICS Membership

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers Canada Branch is always looking for ways to add value to our membership community.   Therefore, we are pleased to introduce the Canada Branch Membership List.   http://www.ics-canada.ca/membership/canadian-members/

What does it mean to be an ICS member?  The common understanding is that the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers is the only internationally recognized professional body representing shipbrokers, ship managers and agents throughout the world.  In practice, ICS membership connects our professional careers with a vast network of highly dedicated maritime professionals of nearly 100 Canada Branch members locally, and more than 4,000 members internationally.

How can we get value from being an ICS member?  Networking, field trips and educational sessions have always been a successful and popular way to engage members and non-members alike.   Local content that is connected to local professionals and expertise.

But of those that attend, who is qualified as an ICS member?  For some time, it has not been clear on who has also shared this ICS journey.  Membership should be the heart and soul of our organization, it is the main reason that at the Canada Branch keep active in our communities.  And a community is the reason we may have become members in the first place.

The Canada Branch Membership List is another value add to your ICS membership.  This list is meant to communicate a members commitment to the ICS community with the goal of creating an ICS community.  Privacy is of utmost importance, therefore we are committed to sharing only your name and ICS membership designation.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact me directly.

Canada Branch Chair
