Event Details
In 2018, UBE commemorates its 50th year (Golden Anniversary) of advocacy and contribution to the mission of The Episcopal Church.

The 50th Annual Business Meeting and Conference (ABMC) of the UBE will be held in Nassau, Bahamas from July 23 – July 27, 2018. The ABMC serves as a key gathering point for the members of the African diaspora in the Episcopal Church. Our organization is committed to vigilance and action aimed at achieving justice for all people, especially those of African descent, to the eradication of racism in the Church and society, and to the full and dynamic inclusion of black people in every aspect of Church life. Our conference is multi-generational and includes youth, young adults, as well as lay and clergy.

We will honor three individuals who have contributed greatly to the ministry of our church:
Mattie Hopkins Honor Award – Canon Diane Porter
Dr. Verna Josephine Dozier Honor Award – Councilwoman Ora Houston
Special Community Award – Dr. John F. Robertson, Ph.D.
