Northrim Bank Hosts Economic Luncheon

Northrim Bank will host an Economic Luncheon in Fairbanks on April 9 and Anchorage on April 10. A third luncheon on April 11 in Juneau will be added this year as a result of the acquisition of Alaska Pacific Bank. Speakers include Northrim Bank President and CEO Joe Beedle, Northrim Bank Economist Mark Edwards, and guest speaker Dr. Bill Conerly, business strategy consultant, online contributor to Forbes and author of Businomics. Guests at the luncheon will be given an update on Alaska’s economy and a special presentation on the economic issues affecting Alaska and the nation.

Each year, Northrim Bank engages local business and community members to take a stand on the economic issues facing Alaska. As a resource rich state, Alaska must remain competitive with other US states, and foreign interests.

As part of the luncheon, Northrim will also be presenting donations to the University of Alaska. Northrim invests in the community and is proud to support organizations that are helping build a strong community for the future. Northrim is a strong advocate for higher education throughout Alaska and supports each of the major hubs of the University.

  • In Anchorage, UAA’s Institute of Social and Economic Research will receive $100,000 to continue work in non-partisan research to help all Alaskans. UAA’s Small Business Development Center will receive $50,000 that will help further their mission to provide business guidance, services and resources to Alaskan entrepreneurs. The University of Alaska Foundation will also receive $4,500 for scholarship payments to the Knudson Accounting Scholarship. 
  • In Fairbanks the UAF School of Management will receive $50,000 for their work to provide high-quality business education in Alaska.
  • In Southeast Alaska, UAS School of Management will receive $25,000 to help with outreach to area communities. UAS Ketchikan and UAS Sitka will also receive $5,000 each for their programs.
