The International Society presents its 32nd annual conference, “Building Communities around the World: Latter-day Saint efforts in Earth Stewardship, Peacemaking, and Refugee Assistance.” Speakers include Bishop Gérald Caussé and Sister Sharon Eubank.
Our community-building efforts in the United States often garner positive attention not only within the Church, but increasingly from the national media. However, as most members now live outside the U.S., might we think more globally about such efforts? Have endeavors by members to build communities abroad enhanced the image and influence of the Church? Do doctrine and experience of the restored Church provide useful insights? In a worldwide Church, how can local and global resources come together to build communities? This conference will consider these questions with particular attention to stewardship of the earth, peacemaking, and refugee assistance.
This event will run from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM in the Hinckley Alumni Center at BYU.
Registration is now open. Everyone attending in person or virtually must register. If you would like to attend the award luncheon, you will need to purchase a lunch ticket for $30. Lunch registration is open until Friday, March 25th at 5 PM MDT. Conference registration is free for those not wishing to attend the award luncheon.
