This July, FORJ is thrilled to host journalists from across the state for the 2024 Oregon Rural Journalism Conference at Eagle Crest resort in beautiful Central Oregon. Attendees will experience a full day of trainings, seminars and presentations related to community journalism throughout Oregon.  

NEW THIS YEAR! The Rural Journalism Conference is being paired with the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association annual awards banquet! This means reporters and editors who attend the conference can stick around into the evening to cheer on their colleagues and accept awards for their work.
