Chamber Presents Alaska Governor

Gov. Sean Parnell has accepted the Chamber's Alaska Committee's invitation to visit, tour and speak in Tacoma.

He will be presented at the Transportation Club of Tacoma's September 12 luncheon.  You are invited to hear him by registering with the Transportation Club. 

Much is justifiably made of the economic partnership between Alaska and Tacoma.  The status as the obvious "lower 48" home port at the Port of Tacoma for both Totem Ocean Trailer Express and Horizon Lines gives the Tacoma metro a transportation hub for shipments to and from Alaska. 

Recent years have seen continuing economic development in our area directly tied to that home port advantage:  the recent relocation of Carlile Transportation Systems and the openings of both Americold and North West Company are perfect examples of how we enjoy economic growth by meeting the needs of Alaska's economy and population.

September 12, 11 am registration opens
