2022 Policy Forum
Policy Forum will now take place at the end of the 2023 Fall Forum.
The Alaska Chamber hosted its annual Policy Forum on October 26, this event was held virtually, on Zoom. The Policy Forum is a members only event. The purpose of the Policy Forum is for Alaska Chamber membership to add relevant positions to the Chamber's advocacy platform and make necessary revisions to the 2022 Policies and Positions.
After the positions were voted on during the Policy Forum by members, they are then given to the Board of Directors who have to approve of the adopted positions. Stay tuned for the approved 2023 Policies and Positions that The Alaska Chamber will be advocating for next year!
The positions highlight the core issues that impact businesses across the state and provide direction to staff and board members in their advocacy efforts for the upcoming year.
During the Policy Forum, proposed positions are discussed and voted by the body of the membership with only those receiving a majority vote being adopted. The forum is your opportunity to learn, weigh-in, and vote on policy positions that have been brought forward through the Legislative Affairs Committee and now on to membership. Only one representative per Alaska Chamber General Member and Local Chamber in good standing, may cast a vote. As an Alaska Chamber member, the forum is the time to make your voice heard. Participating in the Alaska Chamber's policy formation process provides an opportunity to fulfill our vision: To promote a healthy business environment in Alaska.
We strictly adhered to the one member, one vote policy and voting was anonymous as it has been in previous years.
