February 10, 2018
“The Mid-Session Summit is a great venue to share ideas and engage with other stakeholders on the critical issues we face throughout the region,” said Southeast Conference Board President, Mayor Jan Hill of Haines. “We built this agenda with this year’s theme – Navigating the Southeast Alaska – in mind. In our current climate, we need all hands-on deck to keep Southeast on track.”
The 2018 Southeast Conference Mid-Session Summit will focus on how the region can navigate the challenges facing Southeast Alaska. Open to the public, this two-day conference will include action-oriented presentations from over 40 speakers, a Legislative reception and a group visit to the Capitol.
This year’s presenters include Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Mallott, U.S. Forest Service Associate Deputy Chief Chris French from Washington D.C., Cruise Line International Association President John Binkley, UAS Chancellor Richard Caulfield along with industry and community leaders presenting information on key regional issues (fisheries closures, AMHS reform, mariculture, the Northwest Coast Arts initiative, the roadless rule, shipbuilding, renewable energy, mining exploration, and regional economic planning).
The Southeast Conference is the state’s regional economic development organization and the federally-designated economic development district tasked with promoting strong economies, healthy communities and a quality environment in Southeast Alaska.
