Annual Meeting 2024

Annual Meeting 2024

Boston, Massachusetts

Overview

The ULC Annual Meeting will take place in Boston, MA July 19, 2024 to July 25, 2024.

Each year commissioners gather to review and debate draft acts. Proposed legislation is read line-by-line and discussed on the floor during the General Sessions that meet daily. While commissioners are duty-bound to attend annual meetings, it is common that spouses and families also attend. Although much work is accomplished during annual meetings, it is also a time to renew friendships and enjoy the surrounding venues.
