1 Definition
  1. The weekend-long meeting that is held twice a year by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons).

    It is physically held in downtown Salt Lake City at the Church's "Conference Center" but is also broadcast on local television (NBC affiliate - KSL Channel 5) pre-empting regularly scheduled programming. It is also broadcast to church congregations in the Utah area and across the world for those who can't attend in person.

    The sessions are held on Saturday and Sunday, usually in the spring (around Easter) and fall (around the time of the switch from daylight savings to standard time). Each day has a morning and afternoon session which are about two hours each.

    Mormons from all over the world converge on Salt Lake City during this time. The entire weekend is often called "conference" or "conference weekend". Posted by: simpleutahboi on Aug 13, 2012 (0) (0)
