State chamber changes convention dates

Posted: Tuesday, October 02, 2001

JUNEAU -- The Alaska State Chamber of Commerce has rescheduled its annual convention and business trade show for Oct. 30 through Nov. 1.

The convention and trade show were scheduled to take place in mid-September in Dawson City, Yukon Territory, but were rescheduled and relocated to Juneau because of the Sept. 11 attacks on the East Coast.

The convention, titled Planning for Progress in Challenging Times, will focus on challenges Alaska's economy faces in light of the national economy. Other discussions will include plans for producing Alaska's natural gas, long-term impacts of terrorism on travel in Alaska and the implications of a tighter economy for Alaska businesses.
