Board of Directors
For over 100 years Anchorage Chamber of Commerce is able to advance a successful business climate because of its hard-working staff and dedicated board of directors. The board of directors represents both large and small businesses with diverse backgrounds and vocations. The board of directors makes decisions about issues with the needs of the entire membership in mind.
The board of directors is comprised entirely of volunteers who attend monthly board meetings, speaking engagements, Anchorage Chamber events and activities and support the business community.
Former members of the board of directors include Mayors George Wuerch and Zach Loussac; Augie Hiebert, who was instrumental in bringing telecommunications to Alaska; and Robert Atwood, who was a pioneer in the Anchorage newspaper industry.
