Volunteers needed to promote Homer

The Homer Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a booth at the Great Alaskan Sportsman Show April 4-7, at the Sullivan Arena in Anchorage. Each year the chamber gives out more than 5,000 Homer visitor guides and talks with nearly 10,000 people about why Homer is the perfect outdoor recreation destination.

People interested in volunteering to help staff the booth are asked to call the chamber at (907) 235-7740. Volunteers are expected to cover their own lodging and transportation. The Homer booth is coordinated by the Homer Jackpot Halibut Derby Committee.

Workshop targets disaster readiness for documents

A natural disaster or other catastrophic event can create serious disruption for any business or organization and can potentially destroy years of research, documentation or corporate memory. The Association of Records Managers and Administrators is offering a workshop April 18 about proper planning methods, how to test disaster plans, how to establish alternative communication links, how to develop a pre-loss priority checklist, and how to protect assets and vital information. Participants will take a tour of the Emergency Operations Center. For more information, contact Larry Hayden at the Arc of Anchorage, at (907) 277-6677, extension 224.
