Join Commonwealth North online for a spirited debate about the future of the Permanent Fund. Ralph Townsend, Director of UAA’s Institute for Social and Economic Research, and Craig Richards, Chair of the Permanent Fund Board of Trustees, will debate the best way to manage the Permanent Fund to ensure its sustainability for future Alaskans.

You will get to vote for the most convincing argument to determine the winner.

We will be hosting the event with the online videoconference program Zoom so you can join us by video from computer, tablet, or smartphone. You also have the option to dial in by phone.

The event is limited to 100 so registration is required. It’s free for CWN members, $5 for non members.
