“Temple Presidents Trained at Seminar,” Ensign, Nov. 1996, 109
Seventeen new temple presidents and matrons received special training at the annual temple presidents seminar held in Salt Lake City.
During the 20–22 August event, the new leaders received instruction in matters related to temple administration. Most of the leaders, whose new assignments were announced earlier in the Ensign, are seasoned in Church administration. They began serving in September. Temple presidents and matrons generally serve for three years.
