According to Koniag President Shauna Hegna and Chugach Alaska President and CEO Sheri Buretta, it’s time to talk about the future of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trust—what it should benefit and preserve, as well as what it shouldn’t.
Chugach Alaska Corporation President and CEO Sheri Buretta supports a proposal for the remaining $150 million in the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trust that would allow for permanent restoration work in the spill zone—and is calling on the public to make their support heard as well.
Chugach Alaska Corporation’s (Chugach) Board of Directors announced that President and CEO Gabriel Kompkoff will resign from his role. Board Chair Sheri Buretta has been named interim President and CEO until an executive search can be conducted.
All together Alaska Native regional corporations reported more than $10.5 billion in revenue last year—revenue that creates opportunities; protects their lands, culture, and resources; and provides investment opportunities for the entire state and, more importantly, their shareholders.
