• Juneau Fly-In Banner
  • Join us in February to meet with your 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. 

    As a Chamber member, you are strategically positioned to have a voice that resonates with and influences policymakers.  Participating in our Juneau Fly-In allows you to engage in the policy-making process and gives your business exposure and presence among lawmakers.

    The Chamber makes it easy for you to advocate for a strong economy.  We plan your itinerary, schedule all of the meetings, and arrange impactful speakers to help you gain a better understanding of the issues.  We pair new Juneau Fly-in participants with experienced advocates. We will prep you on the issues that the Fairbanks Chamber has determined are essential for businesses to grow and thrive in Alaska and in the Interior. You simply fly to Juneau!
