The 5th Alaska Regional Annual Conference will be held April 7th - 9th, 1998 in Anchorage. The conference will have a strong technical focus while maintaining indigenous priorities. Past technical sessions have included: Ecosystem Management, TEK&W, Contracting & Compacting and Funding Opportunities. Other activities will include a traditional feast, dance groups and a lively auction with proceeds going to our scholarship fund.
