2024 Annual Meeting and Conference

August 6 - August 10

Our fabulous Annual Meeting and Conference will be held August 6 – 10, 2024, in Washington, D.C.  Although we are still working on hammering down the details of the agenda, we wanted to give you some important preliminary information to help you make your travel plans.

The LGBTQ+ Judges Annual Meeting and Conference is scheduled in conjunction with Lavender Law, the annual conference of the U.S.-based National LGBTQ+ Bar Association.  Our conference attracts judges from multiple countries, including Canada, the U.S., and others.

To maximize your participation in our events, we recommend arriving no later than the afternoon of Tuesday, August 6, and departing no earlier than Saturday, August 10. 

This year, Lavender Law and the LGBTQ+ Judges Annual Meeting and Conference will be held at the Westin Washington D.C. Downtown, 999 9th Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.

The National LGBTQ+ Bar Association has secured a room block at the host hotel at a reduced rate of US $249 per night.  As occurs every year, we expect this room block to be gone well in advance of the conference.  Please make your room reservation ASAP.
