We want to see you at the 2021 SDBA Annual Leadership Conference to be held at The Hotel Alex Johnson, July 29 & 30, in Rapid City, SD. 

The week will start off with Training Seminars on Tuesday, July 27, in Sioux Falls at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown:  A morning session for News Journalists, and an afternoon session for Sales Associates, Sales Executives, and Staff. 

The Leadership Conference/Training Seminars will begin Thursday, July 29 in Rapid City at the Hotel Alex Johnson.  You may choose to attend the entire Leadership Conference including meals and the Awards Luncheon, or register to attend just a Training Seminar(s).   There will be Sales Training for Sales Associates, Sales Executives, and Staff;  and Leadership Seminars for Managers and Owners, offered both Thursday and Friday.

The South Dakota Broadcasters Association encourages all attendees to familiarize themselves with all COVID-19 related guidance provided by the CDC and by the appropriate state and local public health authorities in the areas to and from which they will be traveling in order to attend the conference/training.  Compliance with such guidance, and with any on-site health and safety protocols recommended by the SDBA to help ensure the safety of all event participants, is strongly encouraged by the SDBA but will ultimately remain the responsibility of individual attendees.
