June was an exciting month for conferences in Juneau, starting with the Sealaska Heritage Institute Culturally Responsive Education Conference and ending with WASHTO (The Western Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials).
In between these, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council gathered in Juneau, as did the JDHS Class of 1987 Reunion.
These groups brought a total of 600+ people to town with an Estimated Economic Impact of $800,000.
Even during a damp month, we received people from all over the country for multiple night stays and the general consensus was that Juneau is indeed a beautiful place to live. These meetings and groups mean business, which benefits the entire community, and we look forward to hosting our next visiting organizations:
- Council of State Governments (West), July 8-12
