I am a little confused why it is referred to as an "Annual General Conference". Since it is held in April and October, wouldn't that make it a Semi-Annual conference?

This is the 184th year of General Conference. April is the annual one and October the semi-annual one. So, listen in October and you'll notice they refer to it as the 184th semi-annual conference.
