“Area General Conferences Scheduled for Japan, Korea,” Ensign, Oct. 1974, 89
Tokyo, Japan, and Seoul, Korea, are the locations of two more area general conferences of the Church to be held in August of 1975.
The First Presidency announced that the Japan conference will be conducted Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 8, 9, and 10, 1975, under the direction of the First Presidency, with members of the Council of the Twelve Apostles and other General Authorities of the Church also in attendance. All members of the Church in the stakes and missions of Japan are invited to attend this conference.
The same group of Church officials will then travel to Seoul the following week for the Korean conference Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 15, 16, and 17, 1975.
There are two stakes, six missions, and 22,653 members of the Church in Japan, and 8,431 members in one stake and one mission in Korea.
The General Authorities will be assisted in making arrangements for the conference by several Regional Representatives of the Council of the Twelve and by the leaders of the stakes and missions involved.
The schedule of events of the two conferences will be similar to previous area general conferences of the Church, and is planned to provide leadership training, spiritual counsel, and inspiration for the Church membership. The conferences are designed to provide closer personal communication between the general leadership of the Church and members residing in the many countries of the world, according to the First Presidency.
