Would you, or your organisation, join an International ROV Association (IROVA)?

We are trying to gauge, from the greater ROV community, the level of interest behind the formation of an International ROV Association.

Today a new website poll has been added - See the Poll block to the left of this announcement.

Please vote as your response will be much appreciated.Thumb Up

Those behind the idea feel that the ROV industry as a whole is long overdue a body that looks after the specific interests of the ROV industry, employees, freelance and ROV operating companies alike, through an association run by ROV people for ROV people.

Yes, there is in existence a well known, respected, International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) but, by it's very all encompassing nature, it appears to cater admirably for the needs of companies but unable, or unwilling, to service specific ROV industry needs down to individual level, which might explain why we, as 'mere' ROV operatives, are in global disarray at present on many issues.

For the purpose of exploring further the development of an International ROV Association (IROVA) a domain name has been registered.

IROVA.org

Two email addresses are now active.

info@irova.org
For general IROVA inquiries of a non registration/membership nature.

register@irova.org
For registering your initial membership interest and making general registration/membership inquiries.


It's early days, but it's a move in the right direction.
More information will be made available things develop.


The IROVA Poll results can be found at: http://www.rovworld.com/survey-results-29.html

Total Votes: 259

Yes 78.76% (204)
No 21.24% (55)

Still hovering nicely above 75%..... BUT only representative of slightly less than the total number of ROV personnel in this world of ours..... Wonder where this is gonna go?

I am beginning to see why we have a problem in the ROV industry. If, when given the opportunity to have an input which could lead to real changes, we cannot even be arsed to vote then maybe we are getting just what we deserve.

Come on guys - get involved and have a say - if not we can expect to be subjected to falling rates and no improvement in conditions. Even if you are content with your current arrangements it is surely worth having a vote and maybe getting some positive changes.

Unless of course there are only 259 people involved in ROV's worldwide that is! Exclamation

Too true Andy.... a sad lot we are! That 259 represents (approximately) less than 10% of all ROV personnel in the world.

Vote for what you want.. that's the idea of a poll.

It's not that hard to figure out.

In the interim taking little digs at each other is not the way forward for any discussion.
