At Southeast Conference’s March 2016 Mid-Session Summit, audience members participated in a resiliency mapping exercise. The purpose of this process to determine and detail the key strategies that private business owners, elected officials, tribal leaders, municipalities, and community organizations are implementing or planning to implement in order to respond to our current state fiscal situation.
Economic resilience is the ability to withstand and recover quickly from a disruption to the economic base. More than 200 Southeast Alaskans from 23 communities and 24 sectors across the region rated their level of concern regarding the pending economic crisis, and wrote down the actions they plan to take to ensure the economic resilience of their businesses, industries, communities, and region. Nearly 400 individual written comments that became part of this analysis. The results were definitive and clear. Private sector businesses are getting ready to stop investing and layoff employees, as are our local and state government leaders. In addition to long term economic planning, Southeast Conference members want an income tax and a restructured permanent fund, while maintaining a strong marine transportation network.
