Posted on Thursday, July 15, 2021
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
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
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.
