To date the Carmelite Institute has hosted three major conferences on topics of general interest in the Carmelite tradition.  The first, held in Washington, DC, in 1996, was on the medieval Carmelite text, The Book of the Institution of the First Monks, and the place of the prophet Elijah in  Carmelite Spirituality.  The second, held in Reno, NV, in 1998, was on Carmel and Mary.  The most recent conference, on The Rule of Carmel and its significance for today, was held in San Antonio, TX, in the summer of 2001, and attracted nearly 500 participants from all walks of life.  Further conferences are in the planning stage, since these have become one of the most popular initiatives of the Carmelite Institute.
