2020 Spring Conference Information
Spring Conference 2020 – Swimming for a Better Tomorrow
The Alaska Association of Student Governments is excited to announce that our Spring Conference 2020 will be held April 3 – 5 at Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka.
The theme of our Spring Conference is ”Swimming for a Better Tomorrow.”
Mt. Edgecumbe is certainly no stranger to hosting successful AASG conferences. They hosted our 2015 Spring Conference and the 2009 Spring Conference when the theme was “Extra-Tuf Leadership.”
The conference committee at Mt. Edgecumbe is working hard to put on another outstanding conference. They are busy organizing community trips, guest speakers, special events and (of course) the conference dance. Jack Davis is our conference host. Feel free to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Elections planned for this conference include our executive board president, vice-president, public relations officer, secretary, treasurer and parliamentarian. Students interested in running can find the application forms here.

Interested in hosting a conference? Conferences are an exciting opportunity for both the students that attend and the schools that host them.
Past conference hosts Anthony Jensen (Wasilla High), Danielle Lewis (Eagle River High), Elizabeth Bender and Lindsey Glenn (Kodiak High), Barbara Petukh Jackson (Mat-Su Career Tech), Vivian Meyer (Skagway) and Kassandra Mirosh (Tri-Valley) are available to lend support and guidance in your decision to become a conference host school. Host schools will also have the support of the AASG executive board. Our parent organization, the Alaska School Activities Association, has also agreed to forward-fund a portion of your conference, which will help with many of the up-front costs of the conference.
Please go to the conference tools page for more information and the application forms to host an AASG statewide conference.
