National Day of Recognition for Registrars
17 August 2022

The National Day of Recognition that was postponed from the beginning of July has been rescheduled for Wednesday 17 August.  This is now an annual event held with the purpose of acknowledging and celebrating the work of those in and who directly support the registration service.

 The event also recognises the significant contribution that the registration service makes to public services, promoting the registration service as a career within the public sector and also taking the time from our busy schedules to join together as a group of public servants in a shared profession.

 2022 has three significant themes:

  • Acknowledging the 185th year of the registration service which began on 1 July 1837.
  • Joining the celebrations of HM the Queens 70th Platinum Jubilee.
  • Celebrating spectrum of roles and experience of those working in the registration service.

What is happening?

Wednesday 17 August 2022 9.00am to 10.00am.

 A live event streamed via Microsoft Teams encouraging all registrars to join together.  To receive login details please email lrsaadmin@tsi.org.uk.

 An interview (pre-recorded) with a key note speaker from within the registration service.

 Announce the nominations for awards (the winner will be announced at our Annual Conference in November) for:

  • Long service award.
  • Outstanding contribution award.
  • Innovation award.

Further details about the awards and how to nominate are detailed later.

  • Recognise those who have successfully completed the NAP/National Registrars Qualification during the last year.
  • Pay tribute to registrars and those within the registration service who have passed away during the last year.
  • Throughout the day interviews, pictures and stories from registrars and those that support them from districts across England and Wales will be streamed via our website www.lrsa.org.uk
