How to Use the MAM System

What is MAM?

What is MAM?

MAM stands for “Members Assisting Members”. It is designed to help IMRF Members and IMRF Guests sharing their resources, services and expertise with each other.

The IMRF has set up an Posts Board for IMRF Members and IMRF Guests to post Posts on it. One can request, offer, exchange, sell and buy items and services.

The aim is simple: to help each other and to prevent loss of life in the World’s waters.
