The NSW Section Committee met on 3 October and, other than routine matters, discussed:
- SMIX Bash 2023: Sponsorship pledges have continued to arrive and the budget is expected to be met; bookings have opened on the Trybooking website.
- TM Program 2023: Presentation for October has been secured.
- TM Program 2024: RINA now has four presentations for next year, and IMarEST is actively canvassing.
- Liaison with Nautical Institute (SE Australia Branch): A request has been received from the NI SEA for close liaison for technical presentations; they have previously liaised with the Company of Master Mariners of Australia, but CMMA have recently switched to lunch-time presentations which does not suit NI SEA members. Much discussion of pros and cons, and consultation with IMarEST and NI SEA ongoing.
