Gov Palin Announces appointment to CFAB

Governor Palin appointed Chris McDowell to the Alaska Commercial Fishing and Agricultural Bank Board of Directors (CFAB).  The governor appoints two of the seven-member CFAB, which manages the assets of and selects officers to the bank. CFAB was created to address limitations to the access to credit by resident Alaska commercial seafood harvesters, processors and farmers.  In 2000, CFAB’s statute was amended to expand its lending authority to include tourism- and resource-based industries. 

McDowell, of Juneau, has been the lead Seafood Industry Project Manager of the Salmon Market Information Service since 1998 and is widely acknowledged as one of Alaska’s leading experts on world salmon markets.  He is a lifetime Alaska resident and has been a vessel owner and permit-holder in three Alaska commercial salmon fisheries for more than 20 years.
