On Friday, February 7, 2020, BYU-Idaho and the Employee Engagement Council will be sponsoring the 6th annual BYU-Idaho All Employee Conference. The conference will continue to focus on learning and developing attitudes and skills that will help individuals to be better employees of BYU-Idaho and better disciples of Jesus Christ. 

The theme for this year's conference is "2020 Vision: Strengthening Faith in Jesus Christ and the Restoration". The conference will include keynote speakers, multiple breakout sessions, and lunch. Please come ready to interact, exchange ideas, and develop relationships with fellow employees.

The university provides this opportunity in order to:

  • Provide a "gathering" opportunity for BYU-Idaho employees
  • Facilitate networking and the exchange of ideas
  • Provide employees with opportunities for growth and development
  • Encourage employees to engage in lifelong learning
