In November, Tanana Chiefs Conference called a special 3-day long Full Board of Directors meeting in Fairbanks, where the board approved TCC’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. The plan includes ten over-arching goals designed to help reach TCC’s vision of Healthy, Strong, Unified Tribes.
During the meeting TCC Administration, Tribal Client Services and Health Services presented their five year objectives to tribal delegates, who had the opportunity to contribute their own recommendations to the plan in order to ensure TCC remained in alignment with the priorities of its member tribes.
The plan calls for increasing TCC’s revenues by 30% to $200 million and growing from 825 to 1000 employees by the year 2020. The plans highest priorities include substantially expanding medical care and public safety services, a new emphasis on wellness and prevention, oversight of fish and game management, ensuring responsible economic development, and increasing employment in the villages.
A Healthy Fairbanks 2020 project team was formed in June 2014 to develop an action agenda to address the Fairbanks North Star Borough’s top health concerns. To uncover those concerns we are conducting a series of community forums to discuss the health of our community. In addition to the community forums, residents of the Borough will be able to provide feedback via this survey. TAKE SURVEY HERE
