The International Harbour Masters’ Association (IHMA) reports that Commodore Barry Goldman will be stepping down later this year from the role of IHMA representative to the IALA VTS Committee.
In late-September IHMA’s governing body, the Executive Committee (ExCo) appointed Captain Michael Trent, an Associate Member of IHMA since 2019, as Commodore Goldman’s successor on the IALA VTS Committee. At the same time ExCo recorded its thanks to him for his excellent work on behalf of IHMA.
Commodore Goldman will step down at the end of the year following the IMO Assembly in December when it is expected a new draft IMO VTS Resolution will be adopted.
This webinar will feature nine technical presentations, ranging from the design and planning of port and coastal infrastructure to sustainability and climate change in waterborne transport.
