Conventions & Conference Planning
Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese

Every year, each Diocese in the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America holds Parish Life Conferences between May and July.  Every other year (on the odd year), the Archdiocese holds an Bieannual Archdiocese Convention during the last full week of July.  More information can be found below

The Bieannual Archdiocese Convention is held the last full week in July (Sunday to Sunday) on the odd year.

All Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocese Conventions are required to use the Antiochian Events Registration System. The Department encourages all Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocese Conventions to charge a processing fee to all Teens, Adults and Clergy who do not purchase any event ticket(s), in order to offset administrative expenses. It is the policy of the Department that no event ticket have a price less than the price of the processing fee.

The Department of Conventions and Conference Planning (DCCP) would like to inform parishes that the deadline for submitting bids to host the  2021 Archdiocese Convention (July 19-25, 2021) is February 1, 2017. Parishes interested in bidding or obtaining information about the bidding process can contact the DCCP Co-Chairs.  For More information on Bidding for the Bieannual Archdiocese Convention, refer to Archdiocese Convention Manual.

It is recommended that no contact be made with the hotels until you contact the DCCP Co-Chairs. No contract or any form of commitment should be made without the approval of the DCCP.

For more information in planning the Diocese Parish Life Conference's or the Bieannual Archdiocese Convention email the Department Co-Chairs.
