The MMLA recently held the AGM 2021. The meeting took place in a hybrid form with most of the Executive Committee members present in person and other members joining virtually. President Dr Ann Fenech opened the meeting with an update on the latest developments regarding the Beijing Draft Convention on the Effects of Judicial Sale of Ships. This was followed by a presentation by Dr Jotham Scerri Diacono on the workings of the subcommittee revising the MSA while Dr Adrian Attard explained the workings of the same subcommittee with regard to the Revision of the COCP.
After the President’s Report, the Reports of the active Subcommittees and the Treasurer’s Report and approval of the Budget 2022 the new Executive Committee was elected. The present officers were re-elected confirming President Dr Ann Fenech, Vice Presidents Dr Suzanne Shaw and Dr Matthew Attard, Secretary Dr Stephan Piazza and Treasurer Dr Nicholas Valenzia. Also re-elected were Dr Katrina Abela, Dr Lisa Camilleri, Dr Chris Cini, Dr Anthony Galea, Dr Anndrea Moran, Dr Robert Radmilli and Dr Jotham Scerri Diacono as members while Dr Alison Vassallo decided to step down in view that her new commitments in the yachting sector would take up her time. We thank her for her invaluable contribution over the years and welcome Dr Adrian Attard who was elected as a new member to the MMLA Executive Committee.
