Did you know?
If you are a active seagoing Master and a member of CAMM, you are automatically a member of the International Federation of Ship Masters Association (IFSMA). CAMM pays your membership dues. This entitles you to contact IFSMA for support if needed. It is also your voice at IMO. Since 1975 IFSMA has had Consultative Status at IMO as a non-governmental organization (NGO). This allows IFSMA to represent the views and protect the interests of seagoing Shipmasters. Check out the link to IFSMA on this website for more information.

This year IFSMA's Annual General Assembly will be held at the Maritime Conference Center at MITAGS. If you are an active CAMM shipmaster, this would be an excellent opportunity for you to attend an IFSMA meeting. For details and to register click on 2017 CAMM-IFSMA
