SEJ's 32nd Annual Conference

#SEJ2023  |  Boise, Idaho   |   April 19-23

#SEJ2023 conference logoSEJ's 32nd Annual Conference takes place April 19-23, 2023, hosted by Boise State University.

Idaho bridges more than the continental divide: A red state with a streak of bright purple, Idaho banks on tech, recreation and agriculture. Its history of logging, ranching and mining has left a complicated legacy on its awe-inspiring landscape. In Boise, America’s fastest growing city, you can ski and golf on the same winter day. But the challenges and opportunities facing state and tribal governments are familiar: urban sprawl, limited resources, energy sources and conserving the wild for future generations.

We’ll be exploring these issues and more at our 32nd annual conference and hope to see you there! We’ve lined up three affordable hotel options for #SEJ2023, and it’s never too early to secure your room under SEJ’s special rates.
