The 2009 annual conference, June 11-14, will deliver what you've come to expect from an IRE conference and more. We'll present dozens of panels offering tips and techniques from reporters, producers, editors and news directors. You'll not only leave with story ideas but also with roadmaps detailing how to get those stories. You'll be able to take all of the practical advice you learn and apply it to everything from breaking news stories to enterprise pieces. And this year we'll be offering an expanded lineup of Web-focused panels to help you present that work to your online audience.
You'll have a chance to take hands-on training in computer-assisted reporting skills. And you'll have plenty of chances to network with the best in the business.
