"I thought the ATC was very well done, good sessions, good venue, and good people. Thank you for all your work in putting the conference together, a lot of work but very much appreciated by all attendees."
"I want to say “Thanks” and commend all of you for an excellent job again this year at the ATC!"
"You all continuously deliver fantastic conferences. The work you do makes an impact on NADO members and it wouldn't happen without you. So, thank you and keep it up!"
"I'm feeling very inspired and ready to go to work after this!"
"NADO Innovation Awards Reception...where great ideas are shared by colleagues and brought back home!"

NADO staff are currently in the midst of planning an action-packed, robust agenda that will include our unique blend of learning platforms...from peer-to-peer exchanges to professional development training to thought-provoking plenary sessions to mobile workshops in and around Anchorage to roll-up-your-sleeves workshops to learning labs to conversation cafés. And, of course, we are building in lots of time for all attendees to network throughout the four day event!
Conference content is being designed for RDO executive directors and senior staff, planners (economic development, transportation, GIS), department managers (workforce, small business lending, aging programs), board members, and others engaged in regional approaches to economic development.
