    Any 'adjective' for some conference held inside a country?

    Hi all,

    Are there any authentic ways of referring to meetings and conferences held inside a country? (Not an internatioanl one)


    Can the word 'domestic' be used here?

    Yes, I think that would work.

    'National' would be better, for me, at least as a title.
    "Third Conference of the National X Association"; "National Conference of Independent Farmers", "a meeting of national finance ministers" (ie. from the states). 'Domestic' would be as good in some circumstances.

    I wasn't sure about domestic meetings until I Googled it. Many hits came up. National will work too.
