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.
