The eleventh annual meeting will be held in Anchorage on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 in the new Anchorage Cooperative Extension office, in the Chugachmiut Tribal Consortium Building (1840 Bragaw Street).
Please email Kathryn Daly (email@example.com) with a presentation title, author, job affiliation, and approximate length of the presentation (suggested length of either 15 or 25 min + 5 min for questions), and/or agenda items for the business meeting. This will be used to build the agenda. Our meeting minutes are posted from last year here.
We will also have a Friday night social event (2 February, 2018) but our meeting place is yet to be determined – please RSVP if you plan to attend the meeting so we can gain an estimate of attendance and determine whether we need to reserve a location.
