National Fisherman

Alaska Senate President Charlie Huggins and Alaska House Speaker Mike Chenault appointed us as Co-Chairs of the Alaska Arctic Policy Commission (AAPC). It is an honor and a responsibility that we accept with humility.

The Commission will be holding it's first meeting in Juneau, from Noon-6 PM, Saturday, March 23, 2013 in the Centennial Hall at 101 Egan Drive. This public meeting will also be streamed live at www.akl.tv.

The meeting will include presentations from Alaska Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell; Governor Parnell's Special Assistant Stefanie Moreland; United States Arctic Research Commission Chair Fran Ulmer; the U.S. Department of Interior Secretary's Special Assistant Pat Pourchot; Distinguished UAF Professor Dr. Lawson Brigham; Northwest Arctic Borough Mayor Reggie Joule and the former U.S. Deputy Secretary of State/former Alaska Attorney General serving currently as Alaska's Department of Natural Resources Commissioner, Dan Sullivan.

The Commission is made up of 26 Commissioners, including 10 Legislators and 16 experts from throughout the state. We are excited about the diverse skill-sets this Commission exemplifies – an outstanding Alaskan team to help consider and formulate Alaska Arctic policies that will enhance federal policy for our mutual benefit.
