The Landmark Conference is an intercollegiate athletic conference affiliated with the NCAA's Division III. Member institutions are located in the eastern United States in the states of Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, plus Washington, D.C.
The conference was established on December 5, 2005. When the creation of the new conference was officially announced on December 13, another member institution was included, the Stevens Institute of Technology, but ended up joining the Empire 8. Finally, in November 2006, the University of Scranton became the eighth charter member institution. John A. Reeves began his service as commissioner of the Landmark Conference on September 1, 2006. He was succeeded by Daniel A. Fisher in 2012. Katie Boldvich began her tenure as the conference's third Commissioner in July 2019. The first intra-conference competition was played September 15, 2007 at Kings Point, New York, when the University of Scranton defeated the United States Merchant Marine Academy 2-1 in men's soccer.
The Landmark Conference expanded in 2011-12 to add Marywood University in men's and women's swimming and diving, and to add Washington & Jefferson in men's lacrosse. Both Colleges have since left the conference in their original sports in the 2018-19 and 2014-15 seasons, respectively. Marywood University has since become an associate member in Women's Golf in the 2018-2019 season.
Elizabethtown College became the newest member of the conference on July 1, 2014.

During January 2007, a contest was announced to design a logo for the newly formed Landmark Conference. The contest was only open to undergraduate students from the conference schools. In a first phase, a panel of judges selected a winner at each of the eight Landmark schools. Winners received $250 each. In a second and final round, on February 6, in Washington, D.C., the presidents of the Landmark schools selected the final design from among the eight first round winners. The logo submitted by Susquehanna University's graphic design major, Manor member, and men's lacrosse player Tim Storck '08, of Cockeysville, Maryland, was selected. Storck was awarded the $1,000 additional prize. Selected colors were maroon (Pantone 1815) and blue (Pantone 281).
