Dear 100 Hour Board,

If a member of the Presiding Bishopric and a member of the Seventy attended the same meeting, and there were no members of the First Presidency or Twelve present, who presides? Does it make a difference if the Seventy is a member of the Presidency of the Seventy?

Asking for a friend.

-Definitely not a GA


Dear GA,

I apologize for holding this over for so long. What makes it worse is that I don't have an answer for you. 

Although I was unable to discover a concrete answer, I would imagine that the member of the Presiding Bishopric would preside, since they are the head of the Aaronic Priesthood in the church.

If any reader knows for sure, please leave a correction below!

The Seventy would preside.

My brother-in-law's father happens to be in the presiding bishopric, so I was able to send this question his way.
