SEJ Conferences Update:

#SEJ2021 in Boise Postponed, #SEJ2022 in Houston On


March 8, 2021 — Due to pandemic restrictions, Boise State University — the host of SEJ's 2021 conference — has been forced to cancel the June 2-6, 2021 conference. SEJ hopes to reschedule this event for Spring 2023, so please stay tuned for details.

We are pleased to announce the confirmed dates for SEJ's 2022 Annual Conference: March 30-April 3, 2022, in Houston, hosted by Rice University. The #SEJ2022 conference will focus on environmental health and justice, energy and climate change, and oceans and coasts. Save those dates and watch this space. We'll announce details — including how you can contribute to the agenda — later this spring.

If you were organizing a tour or had submitted a panel proposal for the Boise conference, please hold on to your ideas, as we'll revisit all the options with our members and stakeholders in 2022.

In the meantime, SEJ will host a webinar series and the 2021 SEJ Awards Ceremony virtually, as well as the annual membership meeting and board election in the Fall.

We all miss getting together with our SEJ friends and colleagues out in the environment that we talk and write about, and we are excited to see you all in Houston for #SEJ2022 — and until then, "see" you online!
