HOUSING! We still have people that need housing for when they are in Anchorage attending Annual Conference. This is a last minute plea! Please contact the conference office at 333-5050 ASAP so that we can get these delegates matched up! Most of them will need transportation too but if you are coming to Annual Conference then that shouldn't be a problem!
