Biographical History

BYU Women's Conference is a two day conference held each year in the spring at Brigham Young University. The conference is designed for women and men 16 and older who attend general sessions in the Marriott Center at the beginning and close of each day. During the day there are also over seventy concurrent sessions to choose from held in different venues across campus. There are many opportunities for service during the two days, especially during the evening when thousands of sisters participate in service projects for the LDS Humanitarian Center and other local community agencies. Women gather at BYU Women's Conference from all over the US and several foreign countries to be spiritually uplifted, spend time with family and friends and to gain insights and new ideas for home, family, and self. Many women have made BYU Women's Conference an annual tradition to meet sisters, mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends.
