I think it’s a great idea. As we mentioned on the last day of the 2016 Conference, having a semi-regular communication (whether monthly or quarterly) would be a great way to ensure that operating experience and best practices are shared between members. It would also be a way to track commonly occurring issues that should be raised to Wartsila for consideration, action, and/or follow-up. I’m also willing to host or help.
The other thing that we can do to start the ball rolling, is to have member stations email me with a list of top-3 concerns, and I can then distribute the compiled list (so that we can prioritize which areas may require most attention). I’ll offer to start that list. Please send top-3 items to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can have a call between now and the 2017 Conference, and/or fine-tune during our discussions at the Conference.
