Webinar: Positioning Alaska for Economic Prosperity

The economic shutdowns throughout the past year have had dire consequences for our young state. Now more than ever, Alaska needs to take charge of its own destiny—free from the shackles of the federal government—to pursue economic development that will allow Alaskans to thrive for generations to come.

Please join Alaska Policy Forum and the Alaska Lawyers Chapter of The Federalist Society as we host a virtual event featuring Becky Norton Dunlop, the Heritage Foundation’s Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow. This 45-minute webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 2, at 1PM AKST/5PM EST. Click here to register and guarantee your spot in this exciting conversation about federalism, natural resources, and how to position Alaska for economic prosperity.

This virtual event will be a preview for future in-person events in Alaska with Becky Norton Dunlop once gathering restrictions are lifted.


About Our Guest Speaker

Becky Norton Dunlop is the Ronald Reagan Distinguished Fellow at the Heritage Foundation and a sought-after public speaker on federalism and natural resources.

Dunlop was a senior official in the Reagan administration from 1981–1989 inside the White House, at the Justice Department, and at the Interior Department. At the Interior Department, she served as deputy undersecretary and as assistant interior secretary of fish, wildlife, and parks. From 1994–1998, she served as Secretary of Natural Resources for the Commonwealth of Virginia. Her expertise in federalism and resource development can provide valuable guidance for Alaska.


About the Federalist Society

The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies is founded on the principles that the state exists to preserve freedom, that the separation of governmental powers is central to our Constitution, and that it is emphatically the province and duty of the judiciary to say what the law is, not what it should be. The Society seeks both to promote an awareness of these principles and to further their application through its activities.
