2017 House Speaker Bryce Edgmon


2017 Senate President Pete Kelly


Commonwealth North invites you to participate in our 10th Annual Legislator Meet & Greet program next month. The incoming House Speaker, and Senate President for the 2017 legislative session will keynote this event to present their legislative priorities for next year. Then, in table discussions, you will have the opportunity to discuss key issues with elected legislators. Considering the challenges facing our state and the weight of the issues to be considered by the next legislature, this year’s luncheon may be the most important one to date. Register today and invite your colleagues and coworkers to join us and ensure that your voices are heard by lawmakers before they head to Juneau for the 2017 legislative session!

Alaskans are facing a number of important public policy issues and our legislators will be asked to make decisions that may affect the course of Alaska for years to come.  Resolving these issues as well as keeping the pulse on constituents is not an easy job.  This luncheon serves as a two-way line of communication for legislators and Alaskans to hear each other and to share opinions. At last year’s Legislator Meet and Greet Program, about a third of Alaska’s legislators joined us for an outstanding luncheon which received very favorable responses from both legislators and our members.

This is not a campaign, political debate, or cross-examination. It is an opportunity for discussion of key issues among well-informed, thoughtful Alaskans. This program also includes a detailed overview of Commonwealth North’s studied positions on Alaska’s critical public policy areas which include health care, infrastructure, energy, and fiscal policy.
