Alaska business leaders named to Arctic Economic Council for U.S.

Anchorage, AK, July 10, 2014 – The Alaska State Chamber of Commerce (Alaska Chamber) and the Alaska Arctic Policy Commission (AAPC) Co-Chairs are pleased to announce the individuals selected to participate in the initial meeting of the Arctic Economic Council (AEC). The AEC is intended to foster sustainable development, including economic growth, environmental protection and social development in the Arctic. During Canada’s Arctic Council chairmanship (2013-15), the Arctic Council states and Indigenous Permanent Participant organizations worked together to facilitate the creation of the AEC. Each Arctic state and Permanent Participant organization will name up to three business representatives to attend the founding meeting. In response to a request from the Minister of the Arctic Council, the Honorable Leona Aglukkaq, and the recommendation of the U.S. Department of State, the Alaska Chamber worked collaboratively with the AAPC Co-Chairs to select three representatives to participate in the initial meeting of the AEC. Together they have named the following individuals to participate for the United States: Lori Davey, General Manager, Fairweather, LLC Bruce Harland, Vice President Business Development, Crowley Marine Services, Inc. Gail Schubert, President and CEO, Bering Straits Native Corporation In case one of the appointed individuals is not able to participate the Alaska Chamber and the AAPC named Chuck Greene, Vice President Community and Regional Affairs, NANA Development Corporation as an alternate. Additionally, four of the six Permanent Participant groups have indigenous representation in Alaska so there will be additional Alaskans participating in the AEC. The purpose of the AEC aligns with the missions of both the Alaska Chamber and AAPC. The Alaska Chamber’s core mission is to promote a positive business environment throughout Alaska. AAPC’s mission is to develop an Arctic policy for the state and produce a strategy for the implementation of that policy, while working to positively influence federal Arctic policy so that the needs of Alaskans come first.    ...
