The purpose of the speakers forum is to afford members a greater understanding of a wide range of differing viewpoints. These topics are intended to expand Alaskans' perspectives on national and global issues. This newly gained knowledge and insight is frequently used in planning the future of the state. At the same time, Commonwealth North is challenged to influence visiting dignitaries by providing an understanding of Alaska -- its rich culture, history, resources, values, and potential.

In lieu of honoraria, Commonwealth North provides its guest speakers with a first-hand view of Alaska; to explore the pioneering activities of the oil fields in the Arctic and along the 800-mile Trans-Alaska Pipeline; experience the thrill of fishing for trophy-size halibut or salmon; and tour Alaska's vast wilderness, ancient glaciers, turbulent rivers, pristine mountains and abundant wildlife.
