Chugach Electric Board appoints new director

Longtime member and recent Chugach volunteer Rachel Morse has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the Chugach Electric Association Board of Directors. The Chugach board appointed Morse at its December 26 meeting. Morse is replacing Janet Reiser who resigned from the board after 10 years of service to take the job of Executive Director of the Alaska Energy Authority.

Most recently, Morse was Assistant Vice Chancellor for Alumni Relations at the University Alaska Anchorage (UAA). She has also served as Development Director for the Rural Alaska Community Action Program, Inc., and Executive Director at the Bird Treatment and Learning Center. Morse has a Master of Business Administration from UAA.

Morse has been a Chugach member for more than 17 years and served on the Nominating Committee for the past three years. She was selected by the board from a pool of eight applicants who were interviewed in December. In accordance with the Chugach bylaws, Morse will fill the vacancy left by Reiser until the 2018 annual election. At that time, two directors will be elected to four-year terms.

Any Chugach member interested in serving on the board can obtain more information by calling 762-4791.
