The 166th Semiannual General Conference of the Church, to which all members are invited, will convene in the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Saturday and Sunday, October 5 and 6, 1996, with general sessions each day at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The General Priesthood Meeting will be held in the Tabernacle on Saturday, Oct. 5, 1996, at 6 p.m.In those areas where members of the Church can conveniently attend the conference in Salt Lake City, or participate via radio, television, or satellite transmission, they should be encouraged to do so. Under these circumstances, the usual Sunday meetings need not be held on Oct. 6.

In areas where only one Sunday session is broadcast, local leaders have the option to readjust meeting schedules or, where appropriate, to rearrange the agenda of regularly scheduled meetings to permit their members to listen to or watch general conference by radio, television, or satellite transmission.
