Anchorage Marriott Downtown

U.S. Senator Bob Corker, ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and member of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee, will join Commonwealth North and partner organizations to bring Alaskans an update on a number of critical topics including security issues in Ukraine and the Middle East and the Ebola virus. He will also discuss issues affecting Alaska's trade partners in the Pacific region, and Arctic commerce.  U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski will make opening remarks and introduce Senator Corker. 

Senator Lisa MurkowskiU.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski joined the U.S. Senate in 2002. She is the first Alaskan-born Senator and only the sixth United States Senator to serve the state. She is the ranking member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and also serves on the Senate Appropriations Committee, where she is the ranking Republican of the Interior and Environment Subcommittee. Senator Murkowski is a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee - the first Alaskan to serve on that panel - and also is a senior member of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee.


Senator Bob CorkerU.S. Senator Bob Corker was elected in 2006 to the U.S. Senate from Tennessee. He is the ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and an active member of the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee.  The Senate Foreign Relations Committee was established in 1816 as one of the original ten standing committees of the Senate. Throughout its history, the committee has been instrumental in developing and influencing United States foreign policy, at different times supporting and opposing the policies of presidents and secretaries of state. The committee has considered, debated, and reported important treaties and legislation, ranging from the purchase of Alaska in 1867 to the establishment of the United Nations in 1945.

This event is organized in partnership with World Trade Center Alaska
