In 1931 Edgar Cayce gave the first reading on an annual Members Congress. “Each year,” it stated, "one period . . . as a meeting of all members, representatives, wherever they may be located, at Virginia Beach, with the reports made by representatives . . . from the various portions of the country, as well as speakers that would renew the faith, confidence, purposes, aims of the work itself." (254-57)
