Our conferences are the largest professional development and networking event for Alaska's museums and cultural centers.

From the 1970's to 2019, we co-hosted a conference with the Alaska Historical Society.

After the 2019 conference, we knew that we needed a bit more time to focus on the myriad of topics people wish to learn about in our field, so we made the difficult decision to start hosting a conference on our own.

Our 2020 conference was canceled due to COVID, and in 2021, we hosted a virtual conference. Then, starting in 2022, we've began hosting our statewide museum and cultural center conference biennially.

Learn more about our past conferences below. We hope to see you at our next one!
