The Alaska Club

Innovate. Motivate. Celebrate. Those three things are key to making the Alaska Club a success, and it’s a combination that has earned the company respect among those in its field.

Emerging Leaders and United Way

“Millennials” is a term loosely defined as those born between 1980 and the early 2000s. Not since the Baby Boomers—born between 1946 and 1964—has there been a demographic as large and with the potential to truly effect change in their community.

21st Century Conventions: What’s new?

When contemplating what comprises a convention in 2015, one would likely envision a large ballroom or mosaic of smaller meeting rooms, hustling attendees draped with lanyards, decorative tables and booths, myriad events, thoughtful presentations, scattered work sessions, and a large dining room where meals are hastily distributed from lunch to dinner.

John MacKinnon

Small models of bulldozers, excavators, backhoes, cement mixers, dump trucks, and other construction equipment line the windowsills of John MacKinnon’s office at Associated General Contractors (AGC) in Anchorage.

Arctic Council Chairmanship Passes to United States

Before this month is over this year’s session of the Alaska State Legislature will be over. Ten days into March I’m wondering how much our elected officials can possibly accomplish by April 19—so little has been done so far.
