Mark your calendars for the 2018 FairMormon Conference, 1-3 August 2018. Yes, three days this year! The first day will be a FairMormon Women’s workshop. It is open to both men and women, but it will focus on women in the Church. The conference will be held at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Provo, Utah.
About the Conference
The FairMormon Conference is an annual event that brings together a variety of people from a variety of areas. Each comes with a unique perspective on history, science, or theology, and all come with a desire to help discuss issues that are sometimes challenging to testimonies and faith.
The FairMormon Conference is a great way to get informed. This year’s conference is geared toward providing information and answers needed to faithfully deal with criticisms leveled against the Church and gospel.
Each year we strive to present speakers that address wide-ranging topics. We invite you to join us for a frank, thought-provoking, faith-building, and enjoyable experience. Come see what the excitement is all about!
What to Expect
The presentations last 50 minutes with a 10-minute break in between, plus an hour lunch break. There is a single track – no simultaneous classes – so you will be able to attend all presentations.
You are welcome to bring a laptop to take notes, though outlets are few. You should be able to find an outlet somewhere to top off during lunch. Wifi will be available.
Dress code: Casual to business casual.
Everyone is invited.
Conference streaming is available for your Windows, Android, Apple, and Roku devices. This is a way for you to have your own FairMormon Conference in your home or office. Registration details will be coming soon!
