    I am the Europe Area Welfare Specialist. I would like to watch Elder Causse’s talk online. The link does not work: it says the video is ‘private.’ Is there a way to gain access to that.

    Apologies but the International Society Conference is only available in the forthcoming, free PDF conference proceedings. You can gain access to this (estimated publication August 2014) and every other conference proceeding by joining the International Society (free).

    What is the date for the 2015 International Society Conference? I had a tentative date of Monday, April 6th, but I don’t see anything listed here except from 2014 for it. Is there an agenda?

    Thanks vey much.

    It is always the Monday after General Conference. We have been working on the new database, but news regarding the conference will be forthcoming next month.
