Organizing Committee

The Local Organizing Committee is in charge of planning IMCC and arranging logistics before, during and after the conference. Choosing locations, setting dates, organizing schedules, arranging social events, public relations and reading lots of emails are just a few of the many duties of the LOC. The committee is excited to welcome IMCC delegates from around the world to Glasgow and is committed to organizing a first-rate conference that incorporates local flavor into this global meeting for marine conservation.
