The vote was conducted at the 54th ICOMIA AGM in May. Anghel has been president of the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) Canada for over 12 years and has nearly 25 years of government relations experience. She represents the interests of US and Canadian manufacturers, Canadian boat dealers and marine operators. Under her leadership, members have seen many firsts including the creation of a Canadian statistical abstract; Recreational Boating Day on Parliament Hill; more than 0,000 in federal government grant funding to support Canadian manufacturers to export abroad; 0,000 to develop boating safety programmes in Canada; and assistance in harmonising standards between the USA and Canada. Anghel has also contributed to the advancement of women in the marine industry, including building a case that led to the creation of an expanded maternity/parental benefits package for NMMA USA employees. “It is an honour and a privilege to become ICOMIA president,” she said. “I commit to the global recreational boating industry that I shall work tirelessly to steer us through this most difficult time while charting the future growth of the industry and ICOMIA.” Two new members to the ICOMIA Executive Committee were also appointed at the AGM: Lawrence Chow, chair of the Hong Kong Boating Industry Association; and Lesley Robinson, CEO of British Marine. Two new vice presidents were also elected: Darren Vaux, president of the Boating Industry Association in Australia; and Mats Erikkson, CEO of Sweboat, Sweden. New convenor for ISO Yacht Harbours Working Group Oscar Siches has been appointed convenor for the ISO Work Group (WG) 8 ‘Yacht Harbours’. He takes over from Ulrich Heineman. Siches has represented Spain in the ISO TC 228-WG8 since 2011. The WG8 was formed to create norms for the operation of yacht harbours from a tourism perspective – TC228 is the Technical Committee for Tourism – and since its inception has created ISO 13687 (three levels of service) and ISO 21406 (minimum service level for luxury yacht harbours). A norm regarding service levels for drystack is in progress. “I am very happy to follow Uli Heineman’s lead,” Siches said. “The convenor is the coordinator of the group’s experts – the ones who set the norms from within the industry. I welcome everybody with ideas and proposals that could benefit everybody; professionals and users.” Siches is happy to talk to anyone about the ISO organisation and WG8 in particular, and can be contacted on tel: +34 667 494 858, e: 54 - July/August 2020
