The two-day conference will focus on the issues global leaders face concerning the shaping and implementing of policies pertaining to the rapid emergence of human activities in the Arctic.

Bringing together the best and brightest scientists and policy makers from around the country, the interdisciplinary conference will play a key role in discussing Arctic procedural strategy for the coming decade. The conference will offer maritime affairs academics, professionals and law specialists the opportunity to share their professional views, in an open forum, with the leaders in Arctic policy formulation and implementation.

The exploration and increased presence in the Arctic has a lasting impact on all of us. We look forward to the discussions which will take place during the conference to provoke thought and help determine the best courses of action to manage this precious resource.”

The two-day Leadership for the Arctic conference kicks-off on Thursday, April 12, 2012, at 7:00 a.m. and concludes with closing remarks by ADM Robert J. Papp Jr., commandant of the United States Coast Guard, on Friday, April 13, at noon. For more information including a schedule and registration information, please visit www.uscga.edu/arctic.
