WELCOME “ Please take time when you get a chance to recognize the work by Sarah and Staff that has gone above and beyond. “ • Calls with our Alaska Congressional Delegation • Signage / Check Lists / Best Practices Guidance • Links to relevant info and resources including loans, grants, and tax relief plus usually accompanied by meetings where we can ask question of the implementors • FAQs lists The list goes on. I have barely touched the surface since the beginning of COVID, and it is growing every day. If you have not been to the alaskacharr.com website and visited the CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION page lately, I urge you to do so. The collection of work presented there is incredible, it will take you hours to absorb just the most recent pieces directly relevant to you. But what I am also asking you to do is realize the hours committed by Sarah and Staff to filter through and provide each one of these Recordings, Emails, Documents, and Resources, ensuring that the information they have provided are relevant for our industry. As well as the countless time spent in meetings and collaboration with officials that has allowed CHARR to have a say and be at the table as decisions are being discussed before implementation. Please take time when you get a chance to recognize the work by Sarah and Staff that has gone above and beyond. Thank Kirsten, Edward, Rory, Delia, and BreeAnna for the work they have done to keep us informed on top of their everyday duties. And of course, Sarah, for your dedication, leadership, compassion, and long hours making your CHARR tenure such an asset. You and your staff’s work has made CHARR stronger through these incredibly difficult times and will continue to do so through the days ahead. Thank you each for your dedication and hard work to keep us informed during these extraordinary times. And for increasing CHARR’s reputation among our State leaders and adding value to its members.
