Legislative Fly In January 25-26: Updated Agenda
The Alaska Chamber Legislative Fly-In will take place January 25 and 26, 2012 in Juneau. Time is running out - Register Today!
The annual Alaska Chamber Fly-In is designed to give members the chance to influence public policy effectively by meeting directly with state legislators and the administration. The Fly-In is your chance to seek support for the priority positions established at the Legislative Policy Forum and get to know your elected officials personally. Every member who attends the Fly-In can make a difference for Alaska's business community.
The 2012 legislative priorities and positions have been published. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the positions prior to your arrival in Juneau. Once in Juneau, there will be a designated block of time to review the positions in further detail and learn more about how to best communicate our pro-business message when the visits to the capitol take place.
The most up to date agenda which includes a reception at the Governor's residence and keynote speaker David Minge (former Congressman, MN) can be found here.
Interested in sponsorships? Sponsorship opportunities are going fast. Please contact Kati Capozzi at KCapozzi@AlaskaChamber.com or 278-2727 to secure your sponsorship today. As always, we truly appareicate your support and dedication towards making Alaska the best place to do business.
We encourage all members (regardless of whether you plan to attend the Fly-In or not) to call in for the remainder of our priority 'pre-briefings.' The conference number is (907) 278-2700. The dates and times of the priority briefings are:
