  • FLY WITH US FOR 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 priorities and concerns. This year is very important - as our state savings accounts are dwindling, we need a stable fiscal structure. That is why this year, we will go to Juneau to advocate that our legislators create a comprehensive, long-term sustainable fiscal plan for the State of Alaska and to continue the Interior Energy Project’s work. From the health of our economy and how attractive we are to outside businesses, down to the heating fuel we put in our homes, both of our top issues affect business in the Interior every day.

    Please consider coming to Juneau with us to advocate for a healthy future for Alaska and its businesses!

    First-time fly-in participant? No Worries! 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. The Chamber also holds a meeting here, in Fairbanks, before we fly to Juneau, where everyone is briefed on the details of the Fly-In and all the questions are answered.

    1. Support a comprehensive, long-term sustainable fiscal plan for the State of Alaska

      Support a comprehensive, long-term sustainable fiscal plan for the State of Alaska to ensure the effective use of state resources by delivering essential programs as efficiently as possible and to make strategic investments that promote long-term economic growth. Further, the Chamber encourages government leaders to build a fiscally responsible budget that aligns revenues with expenses. While reductions have already been made to the state capital and operating budgets, a consistent and predictable fiscal policy is integral to an overall plan and vision for business development and job growth in Alaska.
       
    2. Advocate for the stated goals of the Interior Energy Project

      Advocate for the stated goals of the Interior Energy Project - provide affordable energy to Interior Alaska customers as soon as possible; after providing the Interior with natural gas, assure long-term access to natural gas and propane for all Alaskans; use private-sector mechanisms as much as possible.
