FONASBA marked its 50th anniversary with the launch at the Miami Annual Meeting of a book entitled “FONASBA, the First Fifty”, which reviews the history of the Federation since its foundation in London in 1969, examines its current role and then looks forward to the next 50 years. It includes contributions from all of FONASBA’s current past Presidents, the Chairs of its Committees and the winners of the Young Ship Agent and Ship Broker award.
Copies of the book are being presented to all FONASBA member associations and to all the contributors. An electronic copy of the book can be downloaded from Dropbox using this link. Please note that this is an 86mB file so may take a significant time to download.
