Fall Conference 2018 – Looking forward to meeting in Skagway!
The Alaska Association of Student Governments is excited to announce that our Fall Conference 2018 will be held September 21-23 at Skagway School in Skagway.
The theme of our Fall Conference is “Gateway to the Future.”
The conference committee at Skagway 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. Vivian Meyer is our conference host.

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), and Mara Sheakley-Early (Thunder Mountain High) 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.
