Alaska Brief Newsletter – October 2016
We ended our fiscal year at the end of September with a very busy board meeting. After a year of hard work, our Board of Directors adopted our new 2017-2020 Strategic Plan along with annual operating plans and a budget to implement our goals. The adoption of the plan included strong participation from many of you in surveys and interviews.
Thank you for your involvement in planning our future! We learned a great deal from all of you and the data we gained from the surveys and interviews helped us really focus in on our niche in the conservation community. With that, we hope to be even more effective in the years to come.
We now have the most robust plan in Trustees’ history!
PS: Congratulations to Trustees for Alaska’s clients, Chuitna Citizen Coalition members Larry and Judy Heilman and Ron and Bobbi Burnett, as well as the Alaska Marine Conservation Council, for their Alaska Conservation Foundation awards.
Todd comes to the Board from Dillingham, Alaska where he teaches science at the UAF Campus. Please welcome Todd Radenbaugh to the Trustees family!
In September, a group of Trustees for Alaska supporters, Board and staff flew to the edge of the Arctic Ocean to observe polar bears. Executive Director Vicki Clark shares her story of the trip!
On October 25th, The Ninth Circuit will hear the hovercraft case returned to them by the US Supreme Court. Representing amici in the case, Trustees will not be giving oral argument, but Trustees’ attorney, Katie Strong, will be there to observe this important case on who has authority over navigable waters in Alaska.
Trustees for Alaska is seeking an innovative, personable, skilled and creative individual to become our Communications Director.
