Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 IRE Conference will be a virtual event rather than an in-person gathering. For the first time, attendees across the United States and around the world will be able to participate in the signature investigative reporting event via a secure, interactive digital platform.
Journalists, journalism educators and students can still register and participate in IRE’s virtual 2020 national conference, which features keynote speaker Ronan Farrow and 150 recorded sessions.
Professional and academic members can register until Sept. 13, 2021 for $250, and students can register for $50 to receive access to all of the recorded sessions from the Sept. 21-25 event. A current IRE membership is required to register, and attendees will receive conference login information within two business days after registering.
Members will be able to attend investigative sessions and listen in with IRE friends from across the country and around the world. Attendees will gain full access to recorded sessions and available tipsheets and slide decks until Sept. 21, 2021 so that they can take full advantage of the high-caliber training. Session videos, tipsheets, slide decks and other materials may be accessed on demand during that period. Professors are encouraged to build IRE20 into your second-semester syllabus.
