The Biden-Harris Administration has reactivated the Arctic Executive Steering Committee (AESC), created by Executive Order in 2015. David Balton and Raychelle Daniel coordinate the work of the AESC, along with one of its sub-groups, the Task Force on the Northern Bering Sea Climate Resilience Area.
The work of these bodies is proceeding in parallel with that of another federal interagency body, the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee, whose work is organized by Larry Hinzman.
The Institute of the North will be hosting a virtual event for the business community in Alaska with interests in the Arctic. The event will begin with briefings by Mr. Balton, Ms. Daniel and Mr. Hinzman, followed by an opportunity for questions and feedback.
