CEO Chat Dear Member The year has started with a bang, yet on a positive note and already January somehow seems like a distant blur.
In recent weeks, two new items of regulation have been released by the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency in the form of the Workboat Code: Edition 2 and the Intended Pleasure Vessels (IPV) code. The new Workboat Code, in particular, has been eagerly awaited for a number of years and it is good to see it finally surface. There is more information on both codes in this bulletin and details of how to access and download them both.
I had the absolute pleasure to attend and co-host the IIMS Baltimore Conference at the MITAGS Conference Centre alongside James Renn on 17 and 18 January. It proved to be a great event with a detailed and varied programme, delivered by some highly experienced and capable presenters. The event attracted a good number of delegates, many of whom are members of other surveying organisations in America. My personal thanks to James Renn for his considerable efforts to put together such a good programme.
