INTERMANAGER TO TACKLE “KEY ISSUES”
INTERMANAGER, the trade association for in-house and third party ship managers, has formed four new working committees to tackle issues of significant importance to today's shipping industry.
Headed up by key players in the industry, the Manning and Training; IMO-EU; Communications; and New Products Committees are described as being “part of a forward thinking initiative to strengthen the industry and the way today's ships are managed and operated.”
InterManager says that its members are directly affected by the growing shortage of competent seafarers and “their improper training”. Its Executive Committee has therefore decided to create a new Manning and Training Committee to review the issues and propose a tangible action plan. The final output is expected to be a series of common actions undertaken by members of InterManager, specifically geared to address the short and long term problems of the sector. A Committee Chairman is expected to be nominated by June 18th.
The IMO-EU Committee is charged with representing the interests of the InterManager membership at these regulatory bodies. This special Committee will assume InterManager's NGO role at the IMO and will work to forge closer links with the European Commission. Bob Bishop, Managing Director of the Shipmanagement Division of V.Ships, has been appointed Chairman of the IMO-EU Committee.
A Communications Committee, to be headed up by Adonis Violaris, Manager of Communications, PR and Human Resources, Hanseatic Shipping Company Ltd, will concentrate on IT and Press issues. It will develop a new InterManager website and use electronic data processing to further benefit InterManager members. It will also ensure that all the information of potential interest to managers is adequately distributed to InterManager members.
The New Products Committee, headed up by George Hoyt, President of Newslink Services Ltd, will work to define new products intended to improve the services available to InterManager members. In particular, InterManager has agreed to play a stronger role in a better understanding of the shipping industry by contributing to a number of academic studies that will help to shed light on the sector and make it more transparent.
