Calendar for Judicial Council

Spring Regular Session and General Conference 2020

Meeting Dates

We regret to announce that as a consequence of the ongoing threat of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Judicial Council will not be holding its April meeting which was to be held in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

In the weeks leading up to this decision, the Judicial Council monitored developments closely. Unfortunately, as COVID-19 continues to spread rapidly, the Judicial Council  has made the difficult decision to postpone the April meeting as a precautionary measure resulting from an abundance of caution to protect the members of the Judicial Council, staff, participants and the Minneapolis community, from undue exposure to the Coronavirus. Notice will be given of the new date at a future time.
