Agenda Registration Travel/Lodging Sponsor/Exhibit News About Boise


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.

NEW DATES! SEJ's 30th Anniversary Conference will have two sessions:

  1. #SEJ2020 Virtual Conference, to be held online September 16, 23 and 30
  2. #SEJ2021 In-Person Conference, Jun 2-6 in Boise, Idaho

Special thanks to our partners at Boise State University and the city of Boise for graciously adapting to these changes necessary to protect everyone's health.

Note: If you pre-registered for tours and workshops, we will reconfirm your commitment and apply your selections to the #SEJ2021 In-Person Conference registration once it opens later this year.

Keep up-to-date by subscribing to our Annual Conference email list.
