Mari-Tech 2018 Organizing Committee

  • The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE) is an entirely volunteer run, national, non profit organization.

    Numerous dedicated professionals make tremendous efforts to organize the National Council, local branch meetings, and professional events such as Mari-Tech 2018, all for the benefit of the institute’s membership, the Marine and Marine Engineering community at large.

    The Vancouver Island Branch (VIB) has been active in hosting technical conferences in addition to twice before hosting MariTech, the CIMarE‘s national technical conference which is held in rotation between the seven branches. Past conferences have been consistently well received by Sponsors, Exhibitors, Presenters and Attendees alike. Some past events have included High Speed Vessel Conference 1999, Green Marine 2009, MariTech 2004MariTech 2011, and The New Wave 2014. We expect Mari-Tech 2018 to be even more successful during a period of rapidly changing technological development in the Canadian marine sector.

    Technical conferences are a valuable tools for professional development, for networking with peers. They also serve as fundraisers for continued professional development events, held throughout the year by the CIMarE VIB. In addition, the branch uses some of these proceeds to fund charitable acts for the local marine community.

    The volunteer organizing committee meets at least once per month, commencing one year before the conference start; and, weekly as the event approaches.
