IRE favicon


Our national conferences are packed with panels, workshops and roundtables covering the latest developments in investigative and data journalism. The conferences have become known for the practical tips and story ideas shared by prize-winning members in quick-hit sessions. Sessions range from hands-on data training to panels on shoe-leather reporting techniques.

Conduct at our conferences and events, both online and in person, is guided by our code of conduct known as the IRE Principles. We are committed to ensuring all attendees have an enjoyable, safe experience.
