East Africa Branch

The Institute in East Africa




The East Africa branch was registered as ICS Kenya on 31st of May 2007. The branch was later granted mandate by The Institute over 10 East African countries and renamed Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers East Africa.

Prior to its registration, the branch was run by members of the Executive Committee on a voluntary basis, but upon its registration, a secretariat coordinator was hired on temporary basis to run the day to day activities of the branch. However, the secretariat coordinator relocated from Mombasa and the EC saw the need to engage a member of staff to serve on full time basis. Subsequently, a Programme Officer was employed and a branch secretariat office set up.

The Branch premises were officially opened in October 2016.
