An Institute's envoy in Houston... May 2019
Posted on Friday, May 10, 2019
Gertrude Adwoa Ohene-Asienim FICS, Chair of the West Africa
Branch and Vice Chair of the Membership Committee, gave her
availability to meet with local members in Houston on her visit to
the US in May.
A couple of members could make it to downtown Houston on 10th
May: Hemant Chopra FICS and Surinder Singh MICS.
Hemant and Surinder knew each other from their work experience
in Dubai and had been colleagues years back before Surinder moved
to Houston and Hemant moved to Australia.
Both have been part of very vibrant branches and were hungry for
networking opportunities among Institute members in Houston and in
the US in general, where the Institute does not have a branch...
Gertrude's visit and the gathering gave the opportunity to both
to start thinking of working together and planning forward
Hemant has already started helping out head office in the US by
coordinating this year's exams in his Houston office.
It was great to get two enthusiastic members together after a
long while and get talking about all things ICS at last.
Both Houston members look forward to the next networking
opportunity and some ideas were tabled around liaising with other
maritime organisations to start something.
