Idaho’s annual conference on refugees, hosted by the local nonprofit Jannus, serves many purposes: that of rejuvenation, learning, sharing and connecting. It has continued to grow, reaching new stakeholders in the community and providing additional opportunities for improved refugee resettlement. The conference consists of workshops, plenaries, speakers and panels, and is an excellent opportunity to learn best practices, network with others working or volunteering in resettlement, and get updates on resettlement in the U.S. and abroad.
