Alaska’s Fiscal and Economic Future: A Free Public Forum, September 19, 9 to 4, UAA Wendy Williamson Auditorium

You are invited to join other Alaskans at a free public forum on Saturday, September 19, from 9 to 4, at UAA's Wendy Williamson Auditorium, for a conversation about the scale of fiscal and economic challenges the state faces and our options for dealing with them. It is co-sponsored by ISER, Alaska Common Ground, the Anchorage Public Library, and the League of Women Voters of Anchorage. Alaska Common Ground is a nonprofit organization that brings people together to talk about public policy issues.

The forum will include speakers and panelists, but those in the audience will also have the opportunity to vote on how they think the state can best move toward a healthy fiscal and economic future. Later we'll post more detailed information.
