Summit brings Southeast leaders to capital city

Government, business and tribal leaders gather in Juneau this week for the Southeast Conference’s Mid-Session Summit.

They’re discussing energy issues, resource development, tourism and plans for a regional landfill. Sessions will also cover job development in the mining, timber and maritime industries.

Congressman Don Young will address the summit Wednesday.

The 54-year-old organization holds its annual meeting every fall in a Southeast or nearby community. The late-winter mid-session summit updates members on regional issues and provides a chance to meet with lawmakers. It takes place Tuesday through Thursday at Juneau’s Centennial Hall.

Event and organizational information is at the conference’s website.
