The Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) Registry’s Maritime Services Group (MSG) held its first in-person meeting since February 2020 in Reston chaired by Simon Bonnett, Chief Maritime Officer. The September 2022 MSG meeting focused on the strategic development of the organization, a look at MSG performance, business operations, and challenges related to its strategic goals, and updates from individual MSG departments. Representatives from offices in Baltimore/Annapolis, Fort Lauderdale, London, Long Beach, Majuro, New York, Piraeus, Reston, and Vancouver attended the meeting.
Although travel restrictions prevented the MSG from meeting in person since 2020, the group has continued to operate and meet effectively through virtual sessions to promote unified and effective service delivery across all 28 worldwide offices, even in the face of a dynamic and rapidly changing global situation. MSG meetings create an opportunity for the team to strategize across offices, assess performance, and work together to find new ways to enhance client service.
