General Meeting 2019
Venue: Hilton Hotel, Rotterdam, The Netherlands.Follow the meeting on Facebook.
The 2019 Nautilus International General Meeting (GM) was held in Rotterdam in 8 to 10 October — under the banner ‘Global Industry, Global Workforce, Global Union'.
Nautilus International members can still watch a selection of video clips from the General Meeting via its private Facebook group.
Held every four years, the General Meeting is where the future agenda of the Union is determined. It is the place where full members get the chance to determine what policies and priorities Nautilus International should pursue. And this year, the General Meeting will be a day longer to allow plenty of time to debate the future of the industry and the Union.
The GM is a conference where you can share your views on the shipping industry and the issues that directly affect you at work, network with fellow seafarers and meet influential figures from the world of shipping and beyond.
The 2019 GM was held at the Hilton Hotel in Rotterdam — with members assembling on the evening of Monday 7 October and departing on the morning of Friday 11 October 2019.
The conference featured a lively programme of presentations, debates, and speeches from a few leading maritime and trade union figures.
The Union encouraged attendance from lay reps and full members, as well as potential guest speakers and exhibitors and sponsors.
Members attending were given relevant schedules and reports via an app at the meeting. All members can also log in and find further meeting resources on the General Meeting Resources page (log in only)
