Governor Seeks Panel Nominees
November 23, 2004
Juneau, Alaska - Governor Frank H. Murkowski is seeking Alaskans
to serve on committees to help design the state's commemorative
quarter, plan a 50-year statehood celebration or guide the future
of the faith-based and community social service initiative.
The application deadline to
serve on either the Alaska Commemorative Coin Commission, the
Alaska Statehood Celebration Commission or the Faith-Based and
Community Initiatives Council is December 15.
Alaska Commemorative Coin Commission:
This 11-member commission submits
design concepts to the United States Mint that could ultimately
become the design on the Alaska quarter, which will begin circulation
in 2009. Governor Murkowski appoints 10 members, including the
chair and vice-chair, and the Alaska State Council on the Arts
appoints one member. Terms are four years.
Alaska Statehood Celebration
This nine-member commission
plans and oversees official activities related to the celebration
for the 50-year anniversary of Alaska statehood. The five members
appointed by the governor include one public member each from
the state's four judicial districts and a designee to represent
the governor. Four members are appointed by the presiding officers
of the Legislature.
Faith-Based and Community Initiatives
This council will develop ways
for state agencies to work cooperatively with local faith-based
and community social service efforts. The council will also organize
a statewide conference on faith-based and community initiatives.
The number of members of the
council will be determined during the selection process. All
members serve as volunteers.
To apply for a panel seat,
or to suggest a panel member, go to the Boards
and Commissions' web site or call the Boards and Commission
office at 465-3934.
