Annual Conference

The 233rd session of the Baltimore-Washington Conference will be held Wednesday, May 31, through Friday, June 2, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington D.C. This annual event is expected to draw more than 1,500 clergy and lay members from 628 United Methodist churches in Maryland, Washington, the panhandle of West Virginia and Bermuda.

Online registration is now open.

One of the highlights of the session will be the Service of Ordination, which is scheduled to be held Thursday evening, June 1.

Because of the high costs of parking, members are encouraged to take buses to the event. The buses will be provided, at a small cost to the participants, by the conference. Information about the buses and pick-up locations will be available at registration.
