Sociëteit is the Dutch designation for what in America is called an organized conference. At present there are the following Mennonite Sociëteiten in the Netherlands: (1) Algemeene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit (ADS), founded in 1811; (2) Rijper Sociëteit in North Holland, formerly called Waterlandsche Sociëteit, founded in the 17th century; (3) Sociëteit van Doopsgezinde gemeenten in Friesland (FDS; see Friesland, Sociëteit), founded in 1695; (4) Sociëteit van Doopsgezinde gemeenten in Groningen en Oostfriesland (see Groninger Doopsgezinde Sociëteit 3), founded in 1826; and (5) a conference with the same function as a Sociëteit, namely, the Zwolsche Vereeniging.

Formerly there were also: (6) Vriesche (Friesche) Societëit in Noordholland (see Noordholland Sociëteit), which in 1841 merged with the (2) Rijper Sociëteit; (7) Societeit van (Groninger) Oude Vlamingen (see Groninger Doopsgezinde Sociëteit, 1), dissolved in 1815; (8) Waterlandsche Sociëteit in Zuidholland, also called Lamistische Sociëteit (see Zuidholland Sociëteit), which existed briefly in the last decades of the 17th century; (9) Humsterlandsche Sociëteit (see Groninger Doopsgezinde Sociëteit, 2); (10) Zonsche or Zonistische Sociëteit, founded in 1674 and active until 1796.
