"Make it Monday" forum - Advancing Alaska with the Ted Stevens Anchorage Int'l Airport
There are a lot of changes proposed for the Ted Stevens Anchorage Int'l Airport. Jim Szczesniak, Airport Manager, will update members on what the airport is doing and how we may benefit.

He was responsible for the development of O’Hare’s new $200-million, 940,000 sq. ft. air cargo complex. He led an international trade mission to increase Chicago’s air cargo market and worked closely with Chicago’s air cargo stakeholders to improve air cargo facilities and workforce development.
