Nautical Institute BC Branch 2017 Conference
The NIBC will be holding its bi-annual conference in Victoria 10-12 May 2017 at the Marriott Inner Harbour Hotel. The theme this year is "Managing Marine Risks in the Pacific NW."
Watch our website for updates on agenda and sponsorship. http://nibcconference2017.com/
The NIBC has a strong record of excellent conferences, dealing with subjects of interest and importance in the Pacific Northwest. This coming conference will continue the trend and has every prospect of being the best NIBC conference ever. Due to the broad applicability of the theme, NIBC anticipates comprehensive representation and participation from all sectors of the marine industry.
The conference theme will be approached from a technical/philosophical/scientific basis to start, but then developed into operational, regulatory, legal and educational aspects. This will include examination of how we teach risk appreciation in both formal and operational contexts, and what is the role of at-sea commanders/captains in managing risk.
Are you involved in formal risk assessment or management? Do you deal with the consequences of marine risks, either in a technical, legal or operational sense? Are you a senior executive who needs to know more about the framework of managing risks in the marine environment? Does your business seek to generate more public awareness and understanding of marine risks? If any of these match your interest, this conference is for you.
NIBC welcomes all expressions of interest in speaking opportunities, attendance and particularly sponsorship to firstname.lastname@example.org or directly to the Conference Chair (contact details follow).
