SEJ's 30th Annual Conference • #SEJ2020 • Boise, ID • Sept. 23-27, 2020 • Contact

Registration Details

As the country grapples with COVID-19 restrictions, please know that SEJ conference planners are considering various contingency plans. You can help us by answering a few brief questions and pre-registering for Wednesday workshops (SEJ members only) and Thursday tours that will hopefully be held on-site in Boise. There is no cost for pre-registering. Your spot will be reserved and we will reconfirm your commitment prior to invoicing.


Full registration for SEJ’s 30th annual conference in Boise will open in the summer. Please sign up for conference announcements to be notified.

* Registration includes most sessions; s​pecific breakfasts (Friday, Saturday), lunches (Fri, Sat) and dinners (Wednesday opening reception, Thursday hospitality receptions); and all beverage breaks. Some events cost extra; all are clearly marked on the agenda descriptions (available soon). These include Wednesday workshops, Thursday tours, Saturday dinner and party, and Sunday breakfast program.



If you have limited mobility and require assistance getting back and forth between your hotel and BSU’s Student Union Building (where sessions will be held), please indicate that when registering online (not yet available). SEJ will arrange a small shuttle for attendees with special needs. Please let us know two weeks in advance if you have a disability that requires special arrangements in order to participate.



Please be aware that if you register after Wednesday, September 16, special-diet meals will not be available for you.

All catering is arranged in advance, with final catering numbers given to the caterers at least seven days before the event. We always order extra special-diet meals, but these are given out on a first-come first-served basis. If you have severe restrictions and are registering after Sept. 16, please email Robin Smith and we’ll try to accommodate your needs, but we can’t promise to succeed.

Register early to avoid dietary difficulties!

SEJ will make every effort to accommodate special dietary needs. However, we can’t guarantee that your needs will be met for every meal. Please approach all meals with your usual caution.



If you cancel your registration in writing by Aug. 26, 2020, you’ll receive a full refund less a $50 processing fee. Nonattendance does not constitute cancellation. Substitutions may be made.

If SEJ must cancel the onsite conference, registration fees will be refunded, including extra-fee items (Wed. workshops, Thurs. tours, Sat. party and Sun. breakfast). However, SEJ does not assume responsibility for any additional costs, charges or expenses, including costs of travel/lodging, catering or cancellation fees imposed by third parties.

Email or mail your request for cancellation to:
