Regional Conferences (81535-CO-00-C)

Amend the heading to Section IV and add new paragraph before ¶23
  
Section IV. Jurisdictional Conferences  Regional Conferences
Add New Paragraph before ¶23
There shall be regional conferences for the work of the Church with such duties, powers, and privileges as are hereinafter set forth. Regional conferences within the United States of America may also be known as jurisdictional conferences. Regional conferences outsides the United States of America may also be known as central conferences.

Rationale

Jurisdictional and central conferences are essentially the same. This places provisions for both in the same section of the Constitution and gives them a common name, regional conferences. In case some sections of the Constitution retain jurisdiction and/or central conference, it defines their meaning.
