In recognition of the second annual National Economic Development Week, Ms. Cioni-Haywood and Mr. Tyler from the Alaska Division of Economic Development will discuss the State of Alaska's first comprehensive economic development strategy. The five-year strategy will be released in draft form in early May and available for public comment for 30 days. The strategy will guide economic development policy, inform funding decisions for state and industry, identify opportunities for communities to grow and prosper, and provide a clear path to jobs for future generations. Hear about the plan and how you can provide your thoughts on the next five years in Alaska’s economic path!
The forum will also be the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce's Annual Membership Meeting where they will give the annual Report to Membership.
