For more than 60 years, the “Make it Monday” forum has been providing business with educational opportunities. From industry updates, municipal and government reports, to economic forecasts and new industry outlooks, the Monday Forum covers it all.
More than 40 luncheons are held each year, with attendance ranging from 50 to 200 each week. In addition to new member spotlights, What’s Happening Anchorage episodes, door prizes, updates from the non-profit sector, and reports from the Anchorage School District’s School Business Partnership, the Monday Forum is much more than an educational event. It is member appreciation and recognition.
This weekly event is held from noon to 1 pm on Mondays, commonly at the Dena’ina and Egan centers. Doors open at 11:30 am for lunch, allowing members a brief opportunity to network. Media is often in attendance, as many presentations are news-worthy topics that affect all Alaskans.

Monday Forum: What to Expect
Parking at the Dena'ina Center and Egan Center can take time to coordinate. Leave work a few minutes early to find a good parking spot. Keep in mind -- most downtown parking meters time out at 1 hour. Check out downtown parking spots before heading to the presentation. Best bets: JCPenney parking garage.
