Palmer Museum of History and Art Names New Executive Director
An active community volunteer in Palmer has a paid position with the local museum. The board of the Palmer Museum of History and Art hired Amber Lindstrom as Executive Director. Lindstrom was born and raised in Palmer. She has volunteered with Palmer Fire & Rescue and the Greater Palmer Chamber, currently serving on its board of directors. She has also been a board member for the museum.
Lindstrom has been working for a Palmer engineering firm in its real estate service section, handling acquisitions and relocations, title research, document preparation, and appraisal review. That role took on greater responsibilities for public involvement and marketing.
The Palmer Museum of History and Art was established in 2005 to preserve the city’s collection of historic artifacts. It also operates the visitor center in downtown Palmer. Lindstrom succeeds Sam Dinges as executive director.
This year the Alaska Railroad is celebrating 100 years of transportation people and cargo around Alaska. While the railroad is one of the states oldest transporters, it certainly isn’t the only one, and in this issue of Alaska Business we also check in on the Marine Highway, Span Alaska, and the White Pass & Yukon Route. For those interested in Southeast, our focus on that region provides updates on Kensington Mine, Tongass FCU, the troll fishery, and Juneau’s growing landfill.
