The Juneau Economic Development Council annually has openings on its Board of Directors. JEDC Board members are recommended to the CBJ Assembly by the current JEDC Board and then appointed by the CBJ Assembly based upon their experience and expertise in areas relating to economic development and our local economy.
For an appointment of approximately three years starting on/about January 2018, there is one seat available “representing a non-profit environmental organization”.
Interested parties should complete an application AND a letter of interest directed to the JEDC Board of Directors that briefly describes your qualifications and/or interest in serving on the JEDC Board of Directors. If interested in the appointment to the Organized Labor seat, you should also indicate that in your letter.  Please direct questions to JEDC Executive Director, Brian Holst, bholst@jedc.org, or call 523-2333 for more information.
Applicants will also need to complete an application form with a brief letter of qualifications. Applications can be sent to the City Clerk or to JEDC.
