AML Conferences

Throughout the year AML provides several conference opportunities. The Annual Local Government Conference is held each November in Anchorage, Alaska. AML arranges for a Winter Legislative Meeting during the legislative session. This meeting includes the opportunity to speak with key legislators and state officials about municipal issues. The AML Board of Directors, Alaska Conference of Mayors, Alaska Municipal Management Association and Legislative Committee work together to schedule their Combined Summer Meeting. All three groups usually meet in August of each year to work on AML policies and platform and to conduct business for each group.
