Support the ASHNHA Political Action Committee: ASHNHA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) needs your contribution to support a strong health care system in Alaska.
Click here to make a contribution and help us meet our goal of $10,000.
While there are no active campaigns in 2017, we must be ready to support candidates in 2018. We will not have an auction this year and instead ask you to make a direct contribution. PAC supporters will be recognized with name badge ribbons, and on a rotating display during our annual meeting.
ASHNHA, through its PAC, has a tradition of supporting candidates for public office. Because the PAC falls under the jurisdiction of the Alaska Public Offices Commission, certain rules apply. Here is a summary of the rules.
- Donations to the PAC may not exceed $500 per year from an individual.
- Corporate donations are NOT allowed.
- Checks (non-corporate) and credit cards (non-corporate) are accepted by the PAC.
- The ASHNHA PAC does not accept cash.
Directions: The Alyeska Resort is located 40 miles south of Anchorage in the town of Girdwood. From the airport, take the scenic Seward Highway heading south. The Seward Highway follows along the Turnagain Arm with many interpretative rest stops and viewpoints. Depending on the season, it is not unusual to spot beluga whales, trumpeter swans, or dall sheep from your car window. Take the highway and look for signs to Girdwood, the home of Alyeska Resort. At the Tesoro Gas Station, take a left-hand turn and follow the Alyeska Highway for three miles. You will come to a "T" intersection - turn left and go one mile for The Hotel Alyeska. Hotel check-in time is 4 p.m.; check-out time is noon.
Transportation to Alyeska: For those of you not renting a car, the Alyeska contracts with the Four Seasons Transportation Group. Please contact the Alyeska concierge desk (907) 754- 2108 for rates and to reserve a ride.
WiFi services: For your convenience, high-speed internet access is available in all guest rooms and included as part of your resort fee. Complimentary wireless internet service is available in all public areas of the hotel.
