As can be seen on the Events Page – and as our CEO remarks – there are several SAR-related conferences and workshops already on the calendar this year.
The IMRF supports as many as we can: we know that good communication and the sharing of experience and ideas are key to SAR improvement and development.
Bruce will be speaking at the SAR Expo in Cannes in early March, and David Jardine-Smith at the Passenger Ship Safety Conference in Southampton in April.
Please note that the organisers of this conference have offered free places to IMRF Members. If you wish to attend, you should register at www.passengershipsafety.com/conference-registration.php: click the ‘Operators and Public Sector Go Free’ button. The conference agenda may be found at www.passengershipsafety.com/conference-agenda.php.
IMRF Trustee Dean Lawrence will be among the speakers at the Australian & New Zealand SAR Conference on 1 June, and Andreas Arvidsson will be at SAR Europe in Copenhagen in June. Other IMRF colleagues are speaking there, too; and at the conference planned for Helsinki later in the month.
We will tell you more about our planned participation in the 5th ISAR conference in Kuala Lumpur in July and ICE-SAR 2016 in Reykjavik in October a little nearer the time – and keep an eye on LIFE LINE and the IMRF website for further announcements of opportunities to talk, listen, share and learn.
