General Conference

The General Conference convenes annually (typically in April) in support of the mission of the Conference of Restoration Branches.  The Conference meets in Independence, Missouri (USA) and is open to all Restoration Branches whose members have been authoritatively baptized, and have presiding priesthood who have been authoritatively ordained.  Any Branch meeting this criteria may elect delegates or proxy delegates to represent them at the next scheduled General Conference and can do so by notifying the General Conference Recorder. To learn more, see the Eligibility and Participation Requirements page.

Baptized members not serving as a Branch delegate, but who want to attend the Conference, can register, be credentialed and then given voice and vote. Guests are also welcome to register and attend. Guests are invited to share in worship and fellowship, and to observe the business sessions.

Delegates are encouraged to brief the Branch they represented regarding any business conducted at the General Conference, including approved resolutions, and discuss any decisions made or actions taken during the General Conference business meetings. Members of the Branch can then reflect on how they might support those decisions, or bring suggested amendments to those decisionduring the next convened General Conference business meetings or quorum sessions.
