Welcome to 2024 and may the new year bring you success, happiness and good fortune. Last month I was invited to address the annual NAMS Global regional conference in the US online. There followed an invitation to attend a meeting of the UK All-Party Parliamentary Maritime and Ports Group at the Palace of Westminster, home of the UK government. The next week, in conjunction with the IIMS Canada Branch, we shared an opportunity as the headline sponsor for the Canadian Bar Association’s (marine lawyers) online seminar entitled “Topical Issues and Recent Decisions in Maritime Law and Practice”.

I would like to remind members that IIMS has now moved to digital membership cards with immediate effect to further reduce the Institute’s carbon footprint. However, I appreciate some members will still need a hard membership card for identity purposes. Cards are still available at no extra cost. Hope to see some of you at the various seminars and other events during 2024.
