This month, the NWA launched its LinkedIn profile, with the creation of both a public NWA LinkedIn Page and a members-only NWA LinkedIn Group.
This presence on LinkedIn will create two new channels of communication for our members.
The NWA LinkedIn Page will be publicly available, and used to share updates on the NWA’s activity to members and the wider industry.
Follow our LinkedIn page here: https://www.linkedin.com/company-beta/11207786/
The LinkedIn Group, exclusively for NWA members, has been established as a forum for sharing views on current issues and events, and conversation about topics relevant to the maritime industry in the UK and worldwide. The NWA encourages its members to treat this group as an environment for open discussion of industry concerns and challenges.
The NWA will continue to evolve its social media profile over time, therefore we encourage our members to provide us feedback on how we use this platform, and help us further improve the membership experience.
Mark Ranson will be sending all members who are using LinkedIn an invitation to join the NWA LinkedIn Group in the coming days. To ensure access to the group, please check your emails, including your Junk inbox, and respond to this invitation.
Roger Towner, Head of the MCA Seafarer Standards branch recently met section heads and a lawyer from the BG Verkehr in Hamburg. Whilst the BG Verkehr are currently still refusing to accept the UK <200GT Master Code Vessel and <500GT Master Workboat CoCs, issued under article IX of STCW, they did reach a verbal agreement on an interim solution.
The next NWA Safety Forum will be held at the Orbis Centre, Lowestoft, on 6th September at 10am. This offshore wind-focused forum will look to involve all stakeholders in the offshore wind supply chain, with representatives from a selection of our members’ wind clients, shore managers and CTV Masters.
