Alaska Policy Forum accepting applications for first leadership academy for right-of-center leaders


A newly launched Alaska Leadership Academy is taking applications for what the organization hopes will be an annual program to train, inform, equip, and connect experienced and emerging leaders in Alaska. The program, sponsored by Alaska Policy Forum, is based on enduring principles, and looks at how these apply to today’s challenges. 

Seats are limited and very competitive but all state residents who are motivated and dedicated to make a difference in Alaska are welcome to apply. Applications and letters of recommendation must be submitted by e-mail no later than Aug. 10.

“ALA graduates will learn and grow as leaders within a strong peer network whose members can lead on positive and meaningful changes within our state,” said APF’s CEO Bethany Marcum

ALA will consist of eight sessions at various hotel venues in Southcentral/Anchorage, one per month beginning Oct. 15. Course curriculum will be presented by experts from around the country and Alaska, and will include topics such as America’s founding principles, Alaska’s constitution, ethical leadership, on-camera media training, and defending capitalism and the free market.

  1. Congratulations to Alaska Policy Forum for sponsoring this leadership program. It is sorely needed especially in these ‘woke times’. It is said that managers do things right, leaders do the right things. The ability for young people to properly exercise critical thinking is seriously lacking because it isn’t a premium in our educational system. This leadership forum promises to improve this.
