The “Sharing Our Knowledge” conference concept was pioneered by the late Andy Hope III. The first conference was held in May 1993 in Haines/Klukwan, followed in the next few years by conferences in Ketchikan/Saxman and Sitka. Ten years lapsed until the most recent conferences, held in 2007 (Sitka), 2009 (Juneau), 2012 (Sitka), 2013 and 2015 (Juneau), 2017 (Sitka), and 2019 (Juneau), each of which attracted over 400 participants and nearly 100 presenters.
