NASW-AK Redistricting Proposal

Based on member feedback and concern, a committee consisting of Christina Ireton, Jennifer Brower,
Nina Corbett,
Leigh Bolin, and Michael Bonilla developed a new regional map to better reflect the diversity and population distribution of NASW-AK members. The committee's proposed regional map will not impact the number of board representatives and will allow for more equitable representation of the membership.
