Where is the conference being held?
The simulcast is being hosted by multiple churches (click here to see the current locations) throughout Western Canada, providing the same plenary teaching experience to each location. When parents register for the conference, they will choose the location they wish to attend. Churches in other provinces can also choose to host the event as long as they clearly communicate the time difference (i.e. a host church in Alberta will need to adjust its time to 10-1 MST).
