Purpose of the Association
The purpose of the Alaska Association of Student Government (AASG) is to provide leadership training, communication, and a student voice of issues at the local, state and national levels. AASG holds two statewide conferences each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. Each are hosted by various member schools. During these three-day conferences, delegates from member schools attend general business meetings where issue related resolutions are introduced, debated and voted on by the delegation. AASG also sends a student delegation to National Association of Student Councils (NASC) conferences each year.
The AASG Executive Board is entirely made up of students from all over Alaska. Officers are either elected by the general assembly or by their region, or selected by an interview process. Many positions are eagerly contested at both the Fall and Spring conferences. All AASG Executive Board members are required to maintain TAD and grade eligibility in accordance with ASAA guidelines.
