There is absolutely no doubt that belonging to a professional body helps you gain a competitive advantage.
In an industry as dynamic and competitive as commercial shipping, the benefit of demonstrating your commitment to professionalism and your up to date knowledge quite simply cannot be overstated.
The letters MICS offer a point of difference in our difficult and ever changing environment. However, beyond these intrinsic benefits, the Institute offers a range of services to support its members.
Networking & Events
As a member you belong to the only international community of like minded professionally educated and trusted individuals.
If you would like to make contact with other members of the ICS, this is as simple as getting in touch with one of the Customer Support Advisers in our head office.
- Institute branches hold a range of events including seminars, dinners, workshops, lectures and training courses. These are all designed to help enhance the professional knowledge of our members and offer them a way to network and make the most of other members.
- Members of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers are automatically eligible to join the Shipping Professional Network in London (SPNL), London's meeting place for young shipping professionals. SPNL aim to bring together young professionals from all aspects of the industry to network, socialise and learn more about the industry - an objective the ICS is delighted to support.
