Things to know about the Alaska Leadership Camp
The Alaska Disaster Leadership Institute is a training conference designed to prepare volunteers to respond to disasters as leaders in their communities and provide Red Cross assistance as part of our disaster team.
Join us to better understand the Alaska Region, update your disaster skills, and develop your leadership capacity. We're made up of individuals from Fairbanks, Juneau, Bethel, Homer, Kenai, Willow, Wasilla, and Anchorage (just to name a few!) and we all work together to prevent and alleviate human suffering in our communities. Sometimes that is through responding to a house fire or going on deployments. Other times it may be installing smoke alarms, working with The Pillowcase Project, helping Service to Armed Forces, or taking care of our offices and equipment. The list is never ending. We rarely have time to sit back and enjoy a cup of coffee all in one place!
Lodging is provided for out-of-town attendees at the Spring Hill Suites by Marriot, Anchorage Midtown at 3401 A St, Anchorage, AK 99503. In order to maximize the number of out-of-town stays, accommodations will be shared double queen rooms. There is an airport shuttle. All out-of-town attendee travel and lodging is being arranged individually and will be finalized by April 21, 2017. Please contact Celia Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-230-4492 for more information
