Development Branches

Around the world our fellows and members work hard to promote professionalism in the sector. The Institute has a network of 25 international branches. There are also a number of countries where there is a significant presence of members as well as active shipping economies that are in different stages of development as the Institute branches of the future.

In Rotterdam and Istanbul leadership committees have been formed by local members that are helping the Institute developing new branches.

They provide a point of reference for local membership and the local shipping community organising technical seminars as well as supporting local students with revision evenings and Open days.
