Please find below an announcement from the AME Church General Conference Commission regarding the 51st Quadrennial General Conference:

Today, the General Conference Commission voted to reschedule the 51st Quadrennial General Conference to July 2021. The Conference will open on July 6, 2021.

For those who have already registered and reserved their hotel reservations for the General Conference, you will be contacted by email with further instructions within the next three weeks. Thank you for your patience while we work through these details.

With the move of General Conference to 2021, the 37th Biennial of the Connectional Lay Organization will also be moved and held in Orlando following the General Conference. The planning team is working to finalize new contracts with the hotels and Orange County Convention Center. Once completed, more details will be released.
