What is the Moderators’ Conference?

The 209th General Assembly (1997) voted to encourage "that an annual gathering be called by the Moderator of the General Assembly... and that this conference be held in Louisville, providing moderators the opportunity to meet and talk with national staff. [All expenses would be paid by the individuals attending or by their governing bodies]"
(Commissioners' Resolution 97-3: Minutes 1997, Part I, p. 738)
