Berne Union Meetings

The Berne Union organises an annual calendar of physical meetings, online webinars and training, including two General Meetings (in the Spring, and Autumn) as well as a number of technical workshops and outreach meetings on specialist topics.

Meetings are ordinarily for Members and invited guests only, but from time to time we also collaborate to hold joint meetings with industry partners.

Further details on events are below. Members should ensure they are logged in to register or view relevant documents.
