(BPRW) NCNW Announces Host City and Hotel for the 61st Convention Location

(Black PR Wire) WASHINGTON, DC – The National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) will host its 61st National Convention October 9 -13, 2024 in Baltimore, Maryland. Convention activities and event workshops will take place in the Baltimore Convention Center and the host hotel will be the Baltimore Hilton.

“We are proud to bring our convention to Baltimore, further investing in the local economy while enjoying all that the city has to offer,” said National Chair, Dr. A. Lois Keith. “Our biennial conventions are an opportunity for us to engage our constituency from across the country and discuss topics that are pertinent to anyone invested in the well-being of our communities. In a city as culturally diverse as Baltimore, it is the perfect place for NCNW to convene and strengthen our coalition of national women’s organizations while discussing strategies to combat racism, sexism and other systems hindering women and girls. I am excited for what this convention will bring and look forward to seeing all of our NCNW sisters in Baltimore.”

“Considering the city’s rich history, waterfront attractions, and the overall cultural hub that makes Baltimore the northeastern epicenter that it is, the decision to host this year’s convention in ‘Charm City’ was a simple one,” said President and CEO Shavon Arline Bradley. “Baltimore’s beautiful Inner Harbor and convention center creates the perfect environment for our members, affiliate organizations and supporters to convene to discuss social and economic justice issues impacting Black women and girls. We are not only excited to visit Baltimore but also equally thrilled to build lasting relationships with city and state officials and the surrounding community that extend long after our convention ends.”

The organization’s biennial national convention is a meeting of the voting body, members and affiliates of NCNW to conduct business as well as a convening of Black women and their allies to discuss issues pertaining to Black women, their families, and communities. With the local and state government being led by Mayor Brandon Scott, the youngest mayor in the city’s history, and Governor Wes Moore, the country’s only Black governor, NCNW is excited to conduct its business in a dynamic city that represents the positive potential of the future of our nation.

Convention registration opens on May 9, 2024.
