Anchorage Gig Economy Network

The Anchorage Gig Economy Network "AGEN", formed by the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program, is for those that share a common interest in the future of the new Gig Economy and how it is impacted by the Anchorage business community.

This includes app-based workers, freelancers, independent contractors, consultants, professional service sector and the like, working and living in Anchorage. It is about more than just Uber and Lyft. It is a sounding board for anything relating to the Gig Economy. Airbnb, Rover, DoorDash, Etsy, Instacart, Freelancing community, etc.

Come share your wealth of information as a seasoned worker, learn pointers as a newbie, make new friends and even learn a new trick or two. Information is power! The Chamber will also be here in the background to listen and to help improve rights and benefits of the industry.
