Astra holds events throughout the year in its six-state region (Alaska, Northern California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington). To build a diverse network of customers, it is important to attend events held throughout the region. Depending on the locale, different corporations, agencies and WBEs will be present, creating more relationship-building and contracting opportunities.

Astra taps into its state Leadership Forums to identify issues and topics of interest to member WBEs and offers programming aimed at those needs. To help with program topics and speaker ideas, or to volunteer, contact state leaders.
