Alaska Telephone Association (ATA) is your advocacy organization supporting telecommunications in Alaska.  ATA conferences are a great forum to talk about current issues and successes within the telecom industry.  Your sponsorship of these events allows ATA to host top-ranked speakers and provide in depth discussions and networking opportunities to Alaska carriers and suppliers.

Thank you to our Annual Meeting Sponsors!


Homer can be reached by car or plane.  The drive from Anchorage to Homer takes you along Turnagain Arm, through the Chugach National Forest, along the famed Kenai River to the coast of Cook Inlet and down into Homer.  It's a beautiful drive and takes approximately 5 - 6 hours.  Flying from Anchorage to Homer is a 40 min flight over the Kenai Pennisula with views of volcanoes on the opposite side of Cook Inlet.  Ravn Alaska is the airline that regularly flys into Homer.  


The attire for ATA conferences is business casual.   We suggest bringing lots of layers as the weather can be unpredictable.  We are planning for the Welcome Dinner to be outside near the beach.  Rain gear and good walking shoes are recommended.
