Southeast Conference is a regional, membership based nonprofit corporation that advances the collective interest of the people, communities and businesses in Southeast Alaska. Members include municipalities, native corporations and village councils, regional and local businesses, civic organizations and individuals throughout the region. Our goal is to support policies that promote strong economies, healthy communities, and a quality environment for Southeast Alaska. We are the State-designated Alaska Regional Development Organization (ARDOR) and the federally-designated Economic Development District (EDD) for Southeast Alaska. Each of these designations requires Southeast Conference to take an active role in regional resource management and economic development planning.
