The Idaho Press Club Fall Conference 2022

  • Join us for the Idaho Press Club's first in-person fall conference since 2019! The media and public relations landscapes seem to change with the seasons, and it's a great time to make new connections and catch up with colleagues in news and PR/communications.

    The conference will include training and panels on topics such as best practices for covering Latino affairs; how newsrooms are evaluating requests to change old stories; and opportunities for Q&A with leaders in the industry.

    Date and time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. for same-day registration and coffee/morning refreshments.

    Location: Bishop Barnwell Room in the student union building at Boise State University. 1700 W. University Drive, Boise.

    Cost: Free for members; $30 for non-members. You can join the Press Club for about the same price, to get free admission and the benefits that come with a membership.

    Register: Go to idahopressclub.org/events to register by Nov. 17. Seating is limited, so register early.

    For your health and safety:
    We are evaluating virtual options, but we strongly encourage in-person attendance. We will provide KN95 masks and N95 respirators to anyone who wants one, and multiple HEPA air purifiers will run continuously in the room.
