Alaska Chamber meets with business partners in the Pacific Northwest
On April 30, the Alaska Chamber sent a delegation to the Pacific Northwest to continue a biennial tradition that exists to strengthen relationships with organizations, individuals and businesses that are closely linked to Alaska through our shared economies and trade.
As part of the trip, Alaska Chamber members met with the Tacoma-Pierce County and Seattle Chambers of Commerce to discuss shared issues and educate their members on the pillars of the Alaska economy. This included presentations by members of some of Alaska's most important industries; healthcare, oil and gas, transportation, mining and tourism.
The Alaska Chamber delegation also had the opportunity to visit many businesses that have a close relationship with Alaska. Members visited the Port of Tacoma, Carlile Transportation, TOTE, American Fast Freight and Vigor Shipyards.
A group not known to let a lot of work get in the way of a little fun also took in a Tacoma Rainier's game, a tour of Lemay-America's Car Museum and enjoyed a Seattle Mariners game in a suite provided by Liberty Mutual Group.
