Join us in person at the Nautilus UK Branch Conference 2022

18 August 2022

Nautilus members are warmly invited to register now for the Union's first face to face UK Branch Conference since before the Covid-19 pandemic – to be held in Bristol on Wednesday 23 November 2022.

The ninth Nautilus UK Branch Conference will be centered at a key Bristol attraction, the museum ship and former passenger steamship SS Great Britain, located in Bristol's Great Western Dockyard.

The conference is open to all full members of Nautilus based in the UK. It will be held in the museum's Great Eastern Hall from 10.00hrs, with a symposium planned from 14.30 to 17.00.

An evening meal and awards presentation will take place from 18:30 onwards in the First-Class Dining Lounge. Attendees of the conference and symposium are welcome to come along and celebrate a return to conferencing.

The evening event will also include the presentation of various Nautilus accolades from previous years that could not be awarded in person owing to Covid-related restrictions – such as the Bevis Minter Award.

The meeting will receive the UK Branch Conference Report, and attendees will debate and vote on any valid motions received.
