The 7th ANC Seafarers Conference held this year demonstrated our commitment to adapt and innovate amidst the challenges posed by the pandemic. Embracing technology, we successfully hosted the conference via the web on the 20th of May 2021, with an impressive attendance of 95 Deck and Engine officers and ratings from various locations.
The conference featured speakers from ANC Piraeus Head office and ANC Manila office staff, who provided valuable insights on operational, technical, and crew and safety (ISM/ISPS) matters. The latest updates on these crucial areas were discussed, allowing our seafarers to stay informed and up-to-date with industry developments.
While the web conference proved to be a practical and efficient solution during these times, we eagerly anticipate the next seafarers conference to be held in person. The personal interaction, networking opportunities, and shared experiences in a physical setting are invaluable and foster a sense of camaraderie among our seafarers.
ANC remains dedicated to the well-being and professional development of our seafarers, and we will continue to explore innovative ways to engage, educate, and empower our valued crew members.
