2nd ANC Seafarers Conference


The 2nd ANC Seafarers Conference held on the 18th of June 2016 in Manila was a great success, drawing an attendance of approximately 25 Deck and Engine officers. This gathering provided a valuable platform for knowledge sharing and fostering closer bonds within the Ariston Navigation Corp family.

The event featured speakers from ANC Piraeus Head Office, including the Technical Manager, Crewing Manager, and Deputy Designated Person Ashore (DPA). Their presence enriched the conference with diverse insights and expertise.

The conference covered a range of essential topics, including Operational and Technical matters, as well as updates on the Company Safety Management System (SMS). However, to further enhance our crew members' skills and knowledge, new topics were introduced. These included an exploration of the training needs of crew members onboard, highlighting ANC's commitment to their professional development. Additionally, we delved into the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA), ensuring our crew members' rights and interests are protected.

A pivotal aspect of the conference was the introduction of a Crew Evaluation System. This system aimed to foster a culture of continuous improvement and open communication. By providing a structured evaluation process, we seek to recognize our crew members' contributions and identify opportunities for growth and development.

Amidst the valuable discussions and insights, we also found time for camaraderie and friendly competition. The conference concluded with a basketball game, pitting the Managers' team against the Seafarers' team. This sporting event served as a fitting celebration of unity and teamwork, embodying the spirit of ANC.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all attendees, speakers, and participants for contributing to the success of this memorable conference. Together, we continue to uphold our commitment to excellence and the well-being of our seafarers, as we navigate towards a brighter future.
