Alaska, City of Seward, Council

Alaska Municipal League – Iris Darling

Local leaders from every corner of the state have taken over downtown Anchorage this week.  The Alaska Municipal League conference was formed to help cities and assemblys strengthen themselves though out the state and receive in depth study or refreshers for those in need.

Attendees say the event is vital to the planning and handling of the upcoming year.

Iris Darling says, “I’m one of seven people with the mayor and we have a very good council in the city.  It’s a good council we’re trying hard to work together and move Seward forward and try to better the community and way of life there.”


The AML is a voluntary non-profit and non-partisan statewide organization representing about 97 percent of Alaskan residents. Major agenda items during the conference include adoption of the 2014 AML legislative priorities and election of AML officers and directors.

Iris Darling says, “I think this is a great opportunity for the whole state of Alaska to get together and intermingle and compare what issues are facing each city in the state.”

This conference offers an opportunity for local elected officials to review lessons-learned from other communities and pool their resources on areas of common concerns.
