Board

The Thrivalaska Board of Directors is comprised of 14 volunteer members who are responsible for fiscal oversight, fundraising, sustainability of the corporation, setting company policy, and determining long and short term strategic goals. Board membership is an exciting opportunity and has many rewards.  Decisions made by the Board benefit children and families currently enrolled and often these decisions impact future families and the community!  If you have expertise in public relations, financial management, fundraising, personnel administration, legal, education or health and human services and would like to know more about our organization, please contact Alicia Berka at 907 479-0900 x261.
