2019 Spring Conference Information
Due to an evident demand in flights going in and out of Bethel, we are attempting to schedule new flights and charters to accommodate this need. This survey is to evaluate real market data so that we can appropriate the necessary number of seats. Please fill out the survey as soon as possible and we will release further information shortly, to aid attending schools unable to acquire flights.
The AASG 2019 Spring Conference will be held April 11-13, 2019 at Bethel Regional High School. The theme of our upcoming Spring conference is “Forefront of the Last Frontier.” According to our conference hosts in Bethel, “It's been 6 years since the hub of the Kuskokwim has hosted an AASG conference, and we are happy to welcome the student leaders of Alaska back to Bethel. We seldom get to showcase our region to the rest of AASG so we will take this opportunity to give delegates a genuine experience, here in the Last Frontier. This will include explorations of our subsistence based lifestyle such as fishing and wilderness survival, as well as workshops exposing delegates to the Yupik culture.
This is still an AASG conference after all, so expect the same General Assemblies and leadership development workshops that we all know and love. Anticipate every stomp, clap and cheer to be louder and each snap more united towards a better Alaska. As students of Alaska, we are at the forefront of change and so we welcome you to the Forefront of the Last Frontier."
The six members of the AASG Executive Board (president. vice-president, secretary, treasurer, parliamentarian and public relations officer) are also elected/selected at the Spring Conference.

AASG offers many opportunities to make friends and learn from each other. AASG has set up a Facebook Page, has the Beamer Wall at conferences, and builds in lots of time for students to share, from all over Alaska. Delegates have a great time sharing at the AASG Conference.
