Alaska Infrastructure Development Symposium

April 2 - 4, 2024
Register

AML is excited to work with the Governor’s Office of Infrastructure and the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) to deliver the 4th annual Infrastructure Development Symposium to work toward and review progress on federal infrastructure investments. The goal remains to maximize the benefits to Alaska through active engagement and coordination. Held consecutively with the Congressional Delegation’s Grants Symposium, this event will be a clearinghouse of information and planning.

The Infrastructure Symposium will feature updates from state and federal agencies, implementation strategies from State officials, and a review of Alaska opportunities. Most importantly, workshops will focus on planning efforts and ways to overcome challenges. Local and Tribal government officials are encouraged to attend, as well as other community-based organizations.

Agenda:

The Symposium is structured to flow from technical workshops on Days 1 & 2, to plenary presentations on Day 3, and then the Grants Symposium on that Friday.

Days One & Two 

Tuesday – Wednesday, April 2-3

The first two days that include the technical workshops will focus on moving planning and projects forward. Hosted by different agencies and organized as a combination of sharing information and learning from participants, attendees will be contributing to moving currently funded projects forward, learning how to participate effectively, and ensuring benefits flow to Alaska’s communities.

Workshops will cover tracks including Water & Sewer Infrastructure Development, Asset Management, Transportation Planning and Funding, Emission Reduction and Energy Affordability Planning, Data Management, Workforce Development, and a Housing Summit. Other topics may be added. The registration below offers you the opportunity to select one or more, but we’ll also follow up with more specific invitations and outreach as you register.

Day Three

Thursday, April 4

Join us Thursday for the full day plenary, to hear updates from state and federal agencies on project activities and opportunities.
