humber branch agm 2021 Nick Allen FICS takes over from Danny Carmichael FICS


At the Humber Branch AGM last 15th July, Danny Carmichael FICS, General Manager at Ahlmark Shipping (UK) Ltd handed over the Chairman Badge to Nick Allen FICS, Director at Rix Shipping Co Ltd.

Danny had to put up with a few curved balls presented by the pandemic and consequent lockdowns.

Regardless, the Chairman and its committee carried on with all activates: supporting local students funding revision opportunities, and running exams in November and May each year. The hard work of the Branch was rewarded with 4 new members elections during the last three year.

On the member side, the branch offered regularly get-together opportunities in addition to the successful annual Humber dinner - the last was that of last March in 2020.

This year as it was impossible to run the traditional event, the Chairman organized with his committee a Cycle ride held on 18th June around the Humber. The local shipping community really came together and the fundraiser successfully collected donations for over £2000.00.

Furthermore the branch has been the first to take up one of the initiatives proposed by the International Chairman Susan Oatway FICS, and rekindled the twinning with the Netherlands Branch.

Nick thanked the past chairman for the excellent work delivered during his tenure and congratulated him for leaving branch finances in good health despite the challenging times.

We wish the best of luck to the new chairman and his vice Mike Johntson MICS, Managing Director at Rms Goole Ltd.
