Why Exhibit or Sponsor?
The Alaska Statewide Special Education Conference (ASSEC) is an annual event. 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.

ASSEC attracts hundreds of classroom teachers, special education teachers, administrators, parents, health care professionals and specialists whose work revolves around the educations and well being of children and adults with disabilities.
