On November 11, 2003 the members of the Creating Alaska Advisory Board met at the University of Alaska, the site of the 1955-56 Alaska Constitutional Convention.

The meeting was a chance for the creators of Alaska Statehood to discuss their legacy and how they felt the upcoming milestones should best be commemorated. The meeting was also a chance for old friends and colleagues to gather and reminisce.
