What is AK Headlamp?
Alaskans know how essential a good headlamp is — at home, at play, at work – providing a clear view and a path forward.
In October of 2015, AK Headlamp was started in response to the serious situation our state was facing: Global oil prices had collapsed and our state budget was reeling. The volume of oil in the Pipeline was not what it used to be. Many of the megaprojects on the horizon that would fuel our economy were facing serious challenges or had folded; we all know the ones: off-shore drilling, mining, LNG — the kind of projects that would have Alaskans working rather than bickering over how to spend what we had saved.
Times have changed. We have a new Governor, we have many new legislators, oil prices are higher, many projects are moving forward.
There is still a lot of noise out there. And very few Alaskans have time to read and sort through it all.
That is why we have continued the AK Headlamp platform.
It’s for those of you who don’t have time to follow every step of what’s happening in Anchorage, in Juneau, or in Washington, D.C., Houston, London, Tokyo, or Moscow. You are focused on your jobs, your companies, your families.
It’s our future that is at stake. Alaska politicians come and go, but we are here to stay. We compete globally, what happens globally affects us here. We want to be looking forward, not back.
AK Headlamp is here to help.
We continue to focus on three things. We will help you:
1. Sort through what is happening in our state government, in the boardrooms of Alaska and around the globe.
2. Identify who is making the decisions that help and who is hurting your future.
3. Figure out what you can do. For your family, your mortgage, your job, and your future.
We are your AK Headlamp. To show you what’s before you and provide a clear path forward.
AK Headlamp is a project of the Alaska Support Industry Alliance.
