Eastern Union Conference

A North American administrative unit that existed for less than a year. In the organization of union conferences voted by the General Conference session of 1901, the territory of the old General Conference District No. 1 (12 conferences and missions: Maine, Vermont, New England, New York, Pennsylvania, Atlantic, Chesapeake, West Virginia, Virginia, Quebec, Maritime Provinces, and Newfoundland) became the Eastern Union Conference. In its first session, November-December 1901, its Canadian territory was separated to form, with Ontario, the Canadian Union Conference, and the rest was renamed the Atlantic Union Conference.
