NORFOLK, Va. — The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) has announced that it has purchased a commercial building and relocated the conference’s office to Norfolk, Virginia. “This is an exciting achievement in the history of our conference,” said MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas. “As a part of our long range and strategic plan to own our own building was one of my main goals as Commissioner.” “I am elated that this goal has finally come to fruition.”

The conference’s new headquarters is located on 2730 Ellsmere Avenue in Norfolk. It is an 8,500 square feet single story office building located three minutes from the Norfolk International Airport. This marks the fourth move in the conference’s history but the first time the MEAC has purchased its own building. The conference office was previously based in Virginia Beach, Virginia at the Armada Hoffler Building for five years. Prior to that move, the MEAC called Greensboro, North Carolina home for over 23 years. The conference was founded in Durham, North Carolina in 1970.
