A significant benefit to this service is that state stakeholders can draw from each others' initiatives and language.


National Conferences

Our 6th NACRJ Conference was held in Oakland, CA on June 16-18, 2017 with three pre-conference training sessions on June 15, 2017.  We had 1,319 attendees, terrific keynote/plenary sessions and cultural performances, nearly 300 presentations, an awards ceremony, and a concert by "dead prez".  

Audio recordings of keynotes, interviews, photos and more can be found on the 2017 Conference page.
