Last week, we concluded our Annual General Meeting 2023 with great success. This event proved to be an engaging platform for discussion and strategic planning, highlighting the organization’s promising trajectory. The stimulating conversations demonstrated the collective dedication of YoungShip International in shaping the future of the maritime industry.


During the AGM, attention was given to exploring the establishment of potential new departments within the organization. This strategic move reflects YoungShip International’s commitment to addressing the evolving needs and interests of its members. By considering the creation of these departments, the organization seeks to expand its offerings, enhance member engagement, and cater to the diverse professional interests of its growing community.


As YoungShip International embarks on its plan for the year 2023-2024, the AGM played a vital role in setting the course for future initiatives. Attendees discussed key objectives and identified areas of focus, such as organizing educational events, promoting networking opportunities, and strengthening collaborations with industry stakeholders. Notably, YoungShip International is eagerly approaching its 20th anniversary, marking two decades of fostering professional growth and networking within the maritime industry. The milestone offers an occasion to celebrate the accomplishments of the organization and its members, as well as reflect on the transformative impact YoungShip International has made in shaping the careers of young maritime professionals across the globe.


In a bittersweet moment, the AGM acknowledged the departure of three esteemed individuals who have contributed significantly to the growth and success of YoungShip International. Philippos Ioulianou, Amalie Melsom, and Erik Grundt, whose unwavering dedication and exceptional leadership have been instrumental in driving the organization forward, will be stepping down from their roles. YoungShip International would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to these individuals for their tireless efforts and valuable contributions, which have played an invaluable role in shaping the organization into what it is today.


YoungShip International’s AGM showcased its commitment to fostering an inclusive and dynamic network of young maritime professionals. With promising discussions, strategic planning, and the infusion of fresh talent, the organization is well-prepared to embark on its 20th anniversary celebrations and continue its transformative journey in supporting the growth and development of its members in the maritime industry.
