Military Committee

Thank you to everyone who participated in the
2022 Military Appreciation Event!

Hundreds of volunteers helped us feed over 3,000 military personnel and their family members while providing live music and games. We couldn't have done it without our business members who helped us fundraise to provide food and live music. We'll see you in June 2023!

The Mission

The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Military Committee acts as an interface between the military and business community and communicates with the local armed forces to address mutual concerns. With a focus on the military, military family, and community involvement, this committee is responsible for all Anchorage Chamber of Commerce Military Appreciation events.

 

Priorities

  • Maintain military/community involvement and become familiar with potential business opportunities
  • Foster a supportive relationship with our military forces and encourage support by the business community during deployments and redeployments of military and family members
  • Continue to monitor and address issues that resulted from the Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) as well as further reduction/increases of Forces efforts.
  • Continue to be informed of upcoming military programs and facilities
