39th Annual Statewide Elders & Youth Conference
October 16-19, 2022
Dena’ina Center, Anchorage, Alaska


COVID-19 Safety Plan 
To keep our precious Elders and youth safe, proof of COVID vaccination is required for in-person attendance. Masks will be required throughout. If you have a cold or feel any sickness, please stay home and get better. We encourage groups to have back-up plans in the event someone becomes ill. Self-administered COVID antigen tests will also be provided at registration. We also strongly recommend that you take a COVID test before traveling and attending, if possible. We take the safety, health, and wellness of our people seriously. As such, we will be implementing protocols to help mitigate the risk of contracting and spreading COVID during our gathering.  We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 in our communities leading up to the gathering in the event we need to hold it virtually to be responsive to the situation on the ground. We thank Afognak Native Corporation for providing these supplies to Elders & Youth.
