There are a number of challenges that businesses and individuals across Alaska continue to face during these uncertain times. The Alaska Chamber’s goal from the beginning of the pandemic and subsequent economic crisis was to ensure that all businesses across the state had access to the information and resources they needed to navigate closures, mandates, state and federal loan programs and various other issues. Providing unlimited access to the Fall Forum is an extension of that commitment, and also our small way of saying THANK YOU to the business community for stepping up and being a part of the solution in Alaska’s response to COVID-19.
