PUBLIC OUTREACH | COMMUNITY ADVISORY COUNCIL

The Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline (ASAP) Community Advisory Council (CAC) is a volunteer group of stakeholders interested in the in-state gas pipeline project. The Council’s objective is to educate Alaskans about the project, collect and distribute project related information and provide two-way communication back to project management. The CAC is an independent organization and is not a part of, or an agency of, the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC).

CAC Mission Statement: Bring stakeholders and project personnel together to discuss, collect, and distribute timely, factual, and reliable project information for the purpose of educating Alaskans about the ASAP project while identifying and minimizing social and environmental impacts in an effort to deliver the greatest benefit to Alaskans.

The Council provides a forum through which Alaskans can express their views on the ASAP project, while providing AGDC an effective means for regularly communicating project information to the public.

Participation in the Council is voluntary. AGDC provides no compensation to council members, nor does AGDC reimburse members for expenses incurred from their participation in Council activities. Policies or activities approved by the CAC are not binding on AGDC, nor does AGDC take any actions on behalf of the Council.

The CAC typically meets monthly and meetings are open to the public. For questions about CAC activities or to get involved, please contact Tim Navarre or Jason Mayrand.
