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.

Future Conference Plans
AASG is now accepting applications to host our Spring 2023 conference. Conferences are an exciting opportunity for both the students that attend and the schools that host them. Schools both small and large from throughout the state have hosted past conferences. There have also been schools who have teamed up to co-host conferences. Whether live, virtual, small school or large, conferences keep schools working together. A conference is a major event for your school and community and a great way to show off what makes them great! Plus, the host school receives 10% of the profits from the conference.
