The 2023 Southeast Conference Mid-Session Summit begins Tuesday morning at 7 AM at the Elizabeth Peratrovich Hall, downtown Juneau.
Scheduled to coincide with the Alaska Legislative session. The conference provides attendees access to the state policymakers, industry updates across every sector, and networking opportunities among the municipal, tribal, and business leaders across the region. Regional leaders will gather from around Southeast to tackle the economic issues of the day with over 70 speakers during the two-and-a-half day event.
"Tomorrow morning, we kick off the Southeast Conference mid-session Summit, which will bring regional leaders from the business community, municipalities, tribes, and other stakeholders that will examine where we're at with each of our economic sectors and how we chart the course ahead, which is a theme that has a tag line that protects all of us together," said Robert Venables, Executive Director of the Southeast Conference. "So we're expecting between 150 and 200 people to gather weather permitting, and it'll be a two-day event for the mid-session Summit, followed by a transportation symposium, which will look at the infrastructure and Jobs Act investments and how we've done so far and what we're going to expect for the year ahead."
After an early morning breakfast at 7 a.m., formal remarks begin at 8 a.m. with Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy kicking things off followed by an economic analysis and then a panel discussion for the next two days, and it's open to the public.
"There's registrations so anyone can come in if they've registered," said Venables. "We've already got our food counts pretty much locked in but we're excited to see the room filled up with folks that want to join us."
The transportation symposium will begin Thursday at 9 a.m. and conclude around 3 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday the formal agenda will continue at 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
