Alaska Sea Grant will host the next biennial Sea Grant Week for nationwide Sea Grant programs. The meeting is scheduled for September 15-21, 2012, at the Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood, Alaska.
Every two years Sea Grant Week provides a forum for exchanging information on issues of importance to state Sea Grant programs.
Sea Grant directors, extension leaders, financial officers, educators, and communications specialists will share progress, strategies, and projects in their regions.
About 200 directors, faculty, and staff from all 32 Sea Grant programs are expected to attend Sea Grant Week 2012, the first to be held in Alaska.
Sea Grant Week is organized by the Sea Grant Association.
