Fairbanks Chamber Weekly Business Presentation: "Looking North: Alaska's Role in the Arctic"
Featuring Rachel Kallander, Founder & Executive Director
From shifting geopolitics due to the war in Ukraine to rapid changes in the polar ice cap, Alaska faces both challenges and opportunities in the Far North. As the host of the largest Arctic convening in North America - the Arctic Encounter - how will Alaska strategically influence US Arctic policy? This discussion will highlight opportunities, engage challenges, and discuss what's to come.
