Baltimore Conference LogoThe Baltimore Conference held an organizational meeting on April 5, 1932 and formed the Baltimore Conference of Municipal, County, State, and Federal Food and Drug Officials of Virginia, West Virginia, District of Columbia, and Maryland”. The organization was to be ”known as the Baltimore Conference and consist of quarterly meetings of food and drug officials located in Virginia, West Virginia, District of Columbia and Maryland”. Members mentioned that “they had kept in close touch with agencies and other communities and have been on every program of the Central Atlantic States Association of Dairy Food and Drug Officials”

The first quarterly meeting was held on April 19, 1932. Mr. A.L. Sullivan, Food and Drug Commissioner of Maryland was elected Chairman.

The Baltimore Conference of CASA has kept the tradition of having quarterly meetings since 1932.

As was mentioned in the organizational meeting “the annual conventions of the Association, matters of policy, program and administration are discussed while at the Conference meetings the details of field inspection, laboratory, procedure, and detailed execution are discussed” The Baltimore Conference has maintained this philosophy by conducting diverse quarterly meeting aimed at helping the sanitarian complete his/her mission.

Being the largest conference in CASA with a membership of more than 300, comprised of sanitarians from every local jurisdiction in Maryland, State and County officials from Maryland, District of Columbia and Delaware, federal officials from FDA and USDA, industry and academic members, we are a major trainer for registered sanitarians in Maryland who must receive CEUs to maintain their registration.
