It is indeed a great privilege for me to be given the opportunity to serve and lead the BMMOA for the next two years (2014-16) as the President. I thank the members for their trust in me, and shall strive to live up to their expectations.

I am grateful to the past Presidents and Executive Committee members who have worked and devoted their personal resources to make the BMMOA successful organisation as it is today.

As I begin my term as President, I always keep in mind that the success of our professional association is not possible without the active support and participation of the current Executive Committee members and, most importantly, our members. We would strive to function as a group, bound together by a sense of belonging and unity of purpose.

It is heartening to note that Bangladeshi mariners living all over the world is now well connected by BD and the Google group. BMMOA is a part of this group and well focused in the global Bangladeshi marine community.

In order to bring strength to the common core issues of mariners I envisioned the idea of a strong forum comprising the other professional and trade bodies. Thus the Maritime Forum has been formed and as the first Convener of the forum I am looking forward to its success with the support of other members of the Forum.

In this year (2015) BMMOA got affiliation from ITF and the IBF CBA of BMMOA has been approved by ITF for use of the Bangladeshi officers on bard IMEC vessels. With MLC 2006 coming into force this CBA is going to be of immense help to the officers and towards the financial strength of BMMOA.

The level of involvement of its members determines the strength of BMMOA. With that in mind, I invite you to call or email me to share your thoughts, ideas, and feedback you might have to improve our association. I will make it a point to ensure you receive a timely response to any communications you send me. Please feel free to contact any Executive Committee member. We welcome your ideas and suggestions.

This website provides the opportunity for registration of each of its members providing contact information and personal profile together with interactive activities. Please come and join me on this voyage. Let's continue to project a positive, effective and successful professional image of BMMOA.
