Irish Chamber of Shipping Represented On C.I.T. Governing Body

#ChamberOnboardCIT - The Irish Chamber of Shipping are pleased to announce that they have been successfully represented on the Cork Institute of Technology's Governing Body.

CIT's Governing Body chairman, Mr. Bob Savage on behalf of the Minister for Education and Skills, Ms. Jan O' Sullivan confirmed the appointment of Captain Dave Hopkins.

Speaking on the news, Mr John Toner, President of the Irish Chamber of Shipping said "On behalf of the Council of the Irish Chamber of Shipping, I would like to congratulate Dave Hopkins on his appointment and also to congratulate and thank Conor Mowlds on successfully proposing representation from our industry in recognition of the great contribution that NMCI has to CIT."

Mr Toner added "It is a very significant step in our progress to actively involve the shipping industry in the key elements of our support structures and services within Ireland. It is important not just for our members but for shipping companies intending to set up in Ireland to know that there is yet another close involvement of the industry with key Maritime education providers."

The Governing Body, under the terms of the Institutes of Technology Act (1992 - 2006), shall manage and control the affairs of the Institute and shall perform the functions conferred on the Institute. It is, therefore, the authority established by law to govern the Institute.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
