2023 Community Outreach Trip

We are excited to announce that for the first time in 10 years, The Alaska Chamber will be returning to the Pacific Northwest for the annual Community Outreach Trip!

At this member-exclusive event, the Community Outreach Trip offered Alaska Chamber members the opportunity to interact with the community, meet local chamber members and new business partners in a fun, educational and engaging environment. At the Alaska Chamber level, as we continue to advocate for sound policies this event helped build relationships, revealed opportunities and challenges for the local community which are shared across the state.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available! Please contact Annie at to show your support at this important event. See attached brochure for sponsorship information. Thank you to the sponsors who have already committed! Our events and advocacy work would not be possible without your support.
