A Message from our ASSEC 2021 Chairs

After careful consideration regarding the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and with the health and safety of all attendees in mind, we have decided to hold the 2021 Alaska Statewide Special Education Conference using a virtual platform. The ASSEC Board and convention committee are confident we can provide you a top-tier two-day virtual event.  We will continue to provide UAA credit and a variety of sessions along with access to vendors and sponsors.

We look forward to the opportunity to once again gather in person in 2022. In the meantime, save the date for February 6 and 7, 2021 as we take “A Journey to Inclusion!”

Wishing you good health and safety,


Shawn Bernard & Paula Patterson
Co-Chairs - 2021 Alaska Statewide Special Education Conference

By inviting nationally recognized speakers, as well as knowledgeable local experts in the areas of disabilities and education, ASSEC has become a highly anticipated event within the field of special education in Alaska. By supporting Alaskan special education professionals and paraprofessionals, ASSEC also provides an indirect but great benefit to Alaskan students with special needs and their families.
