    The Upper New York Conference of The United Methodist Church


    2024 General Conference

    United Methodist General Conference 2024

    General Conference has been postponed a third time until May 2024 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    General Conference was originally scheduled for May 5-15, 2020 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In May 2021, it was moved to August 29 – Sept. 7, 2021 in Minneapolis. The Commission determined that it was not feasible to safely hold an in-person meeting involving all delegates even in 2021. It was further postponed until August 29 – September 6, 2022 due to visa concerns for delegate presence and participation from around the world along with coronavirus concerns.
