'The Belfast Titanic Society, originally called the Ulster Titanic Society, was formed at a meeting in the Linenhall Library in Belfast in May 1992. Among those present at this first meeting were several Harland and Wolff men and those whose relatives had worked on Titanic ... We are unique in that we are the only Titanic Society in the world that holds regular meetings ... There is a programme of meetings from September each year through to May/June for our members and invited guests. The programme consists of Titanic related material and is provided using the expert knowledge and research of our membership as well as by invited, external guest speakers.'

'Our members celebrate the passenger ship in its many forms. Whether your interest is the liners of yesteryear, the cruise ships of today, or ferries, the society has something for all. Members include employees of major shipping companies, authors and ship buffs, inveterate travellers and armchair sailors.'

'Exists to arouse, stimulate and maintain interest in ships, shipping and related matters amongst the general public; to promote understanding of these subjects and their rich heritage by compiling, publishing and preserving records and illustrative material concerning ships and their part in mercantile and naval activity; and to promote and advance public education in current and historical nautical affairs ... Branch meetings, held throughout the world, allow members to share their knowledge, experience, and joy of the shipping and naval industries. From the young to the elderly, the membership is diverse and reflects a wide range of maritime or naval history. Yet all share an abiding love for the ships that travel the seas.'
