Today's Highlights


Join us at the Westmark on Tuesday, June 4th at 12 PM to hear from Brian Murkowski, president of the North Slope Railroad Company, as he explains the viability of extending rail service to Prudhoe Bay. A rail to the North Slope can help Alaska meet its energy demands in addition to reducing industrial traffic through the state.

Jo A. Kuchle, attorney of CSG, Inc., will dive into the Corporate Transparency Act which took effect on January 1, 2024, and requires LLC’s, corporations, and registered partnerships to report owners, beneficial owners, and controllers of those entities to FinCEN using its website. There are criminal and steep civil penalties for failure to comply. This presentation will discuss what local business owners must do to comply and, they must comply.

Children's Miracle Network Campaign Month

May is Children's Miracle Network Campaign Month at Costco. They match roughly 21% of donations gathered from the community so this is your chance to make the biggest impact. Donators will have a large balloon cut out with their company name displayed on the front-end registers showing their support for the Children's Miracle Network Hospital.

Donations are 100% tax write-off and Costco can pick up donations from businesses to save you a trip to their store.

To accommodate for increased attendance, the luncheon will take place in the entire Gold Room of the Westmark and food will be served out of the Rampart Room.


Many member businesses bulk purchase luncheon registrations at $25/lunch to use throughout the year. We call these registrations "prepays". "Prepays" are not an option for this luncheon because of the price difference. Thank you for your understanding.
