Around the world our fellows and members work hard to promote
professionalism in the sector. The Institute has a network of 26
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 the local leadership committees have succeded in
launching the new Netherlands Branch at the end of 2019.
In Istanbul the local leadership committee formed by a group of
keen members has been working hard for a few years now.
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.
