Launching this new Marine Member category will enable any size organisation, wherever they are in the world, to benefit from joining the IMarEST.

“We wanted to develop something that would really add value to organisations. By signing up five Affiliate members of the IMarEST as part of the Marine Membership, it supports the professional development of staff, whilst a posting on our new Marine Directory also allows for added promotional profile for companies.”
