This September, join us online or in person at Aberdeen’s Maritime Museum as we reflect on the Trust’s achievements from the past year.

In addition to the formal AGM, the event will include a talk by the Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire Local Group and clips from our recently produced Oceans of Value film. A light lunch will be provided and guests will be free to explore the museum exhibits which tell the story of the city’s extraordinary maritime heritage. After lunch, volunteers from the local group have kindly agreed to take guests on a guided walk along the River Don to Seaton Park (approx. 2km).

How to register and join our AGM


Bookings for our 2023 AGM are now open. Online registration closes on Wednesday 6 September.

Joining the AGM online

If you have already registered and are attending online, you will receive an email confirmation of your registration once your membership is confirmed that will include the link you will need to use to join the event. This is a unique link for you, so please do not share this link with anyone else.

Here are a few simple guidelines to follow to ensure you have a successful webinar experience:

  • It’s best to join the meeting a few minutes before the start time in case your computer needs to prepare for the webinar.
  • When you first join, you’ll be in a virtual waiting area before you are admitted by staff into the webinar.
  • There will be a button you can click to ask questions, and review other people’s questions, and a chat window where you can make comments.
  • You can click a button to raise a ‘virtual hand’ during the proceedings if you want to catch the attention of the chair to speak instead.

Joining the AGM in person

The museum is a short walk from both Aberdeen Railway Station and the Union Square Bus Station, so public transport to the venue is recommended. If coming by car, there is no parking available at the museum so drivers will need to use one of the car parks in Aberdeen City Centre, such as the multistorey NCP Aberdeen Shiprow car park just  up from the museum on the opposite side of the road.

Access to the museum is via the main entrance on Shiprow.
