If you are flying into the Salt Lake City airport we will be scheduling BYU vans and/or private transportation for the approximately 1 hour drive to Provo.

All events will be held on the BYU Campus. The hotel will provide van service to and from the campus for our events. In the evenings, after our programs on campus, our room at the hotel will be available for additional all-request dancing for those who aren’t ready to call it a night.
Thursday morning is our General Membership Meeting to which all members and guests are invited.
Thursday afternoon we will divide into three groups and each group will get: 1) a guided tour of the BYU campus on golf carts; 2) a guided tour of the BYU Library (including the new below-ground section), and our NFO archives and finding out how to access them; 3) a van over to the dance facility and to the dance ensemble’s costume storage facility.
Thursday evening the conference officially begins with the President’s reception which will include dinner and recreational dancing with the members of the Folk Dance Ensemble members.
