  • ADVOCACY IN ACTION!

    Join us in the capitol city to meet face-to-face with our state legislators and administration!

    Every year, the Greater Fairbanks Chamber of Commerce and its members go on a two-day trip to Juneau to inform legislators and the administration of our advocacy priorities and concerns.

    In 2018, we will go to Juneau to advocate for the creation of a comprehensive, long-term, sustainable fiscal plan for the State of Alaska, and to advocate in support of the ‘Stand for Alaska’ initiative and to inform fellow Alaskans of the real dangers of the potential ‘Stand For Salmon’ ballot initiative.

    From the health of the state economy to the ability to develop and deliver projects without running into cumbersome regulatory road blocks, determine the ability of businesses to grow and thrive in Alaska and in the Interior.

    Please consider coming to Juneau with us to advocate for a healthy economic future for Alaska!

    FIRST-TIME FLY-IN PARTICIPANTS

    The typical two-day itinerary includes group meetings with legislators, administrative leadership, department commissioners and a hosted reception. All the meetings are pre-arranged by the Chamber staff. We place attendees in small groups and make sure that first-time participants get paired with experienced ones.

    Also, the Chamber will bring the group together before we fly to Juneau, where everyone is briefed on the details with the opportunity to ask questions and share information with each other. 

  • Sponsors are featured on all Fly-In marketing materials leading up-to and during the event. Sponsorship packages include these benefits:

    • Recognition at weekly business luncheons leading up to and after the event;

  • #1: Balanced Budget

    Government leaders need to pass a responsible budget, in a timely manner, balancing state revenue against expenses. Alaskans need a comprehensive, long-term sustainable fiscal plan promising state funds to essential programs while looking ahead to strategic investing that will promote long-term economic growth. 

    #2: Support Stand for Alaska Coalition

    Stand for Alaska will work to inform fellow Alaskans of the real dangers of the potential ballot initiative, namely the creation of a job-killing, community-damaging regulation that would hurt the state’s ability to develop many of its natural resources and likely do nothing to improve fish protections.
