UK HARBOUR MASTERS’ ASSOCIATION (UKHMA)
The Harbour Masters’ Association of the United Kingdom, The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man (UKHMA) was formed in 1993 and today boasts a membership of almost 450 harbour masters, senior port marine operational personnel and commercial businesses from throughout the British Isles.
Membership consists of harbour masters from ports large and small, both publicly and privately owned and represents a unique source of up-to-date, hands-on experience in a wide range of port and maritime operations.
The objectives of the Association are to:
• Encourage the safe and efficient conduct of marine operations in ports;
• Promote the interests and professional competence of harbour masters;
• Represent by way of professional advice and support the views of
harbour masters to third-party bodies.
In addition, the UKHMA provides a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) facility and administers the MCA-endorsed Harbour Master Certificate.
