Fishnet Lunches are ANVCA’s version of a lunch and learn. Each lunch is assigned a specific topic to benefit Members and Partners. ANVCA takes the opportunity to address and discuss items relevant to Alaska Native Village Corporations. The lunches are open to the public, however Members and Partners may receive a special entry discount. These lunches often feature local guest speakers and topics of high importance to Members and Partners.
Each Fishnet Lunch also offers beneficial sponsorship opportunities. If you are interested in taking part in the many sponsorship opportunities ANVCA offers, and receiving significant brand recognition, please contact us.
