Meetings will be held at the Lancaster Convention Center in downtown Lancaster, a gorgeous facility completed in 2009. It is the largest and newest facility we have yet used for a national conference. Our hotel, the Marriott at Penn Square, is integrated into the convention center.
The hotel cost is $125 per room, per night. You can ONLY get that rate through the conference registration process.

- The business meeting will be held 8am – Noon on Thursday, July 13. Among other business, a bishop will be elected.
- The concluding service will be held Saturday morning at 9:00. The bishop elected on Thursday will speak.

The Lancaster area is a great vacation spot. You’ll find a lot to do: amusement parks, outlet malls, live entertainment, craft shops, buggy rides, museums, art galleries, and much more. The conference website details a few of them.
