Dr. Chamard appointed to 2 Muni advisory commissions

Dr. Sharon Chamard, Justice Center faculty, was recently appointed to the Municipality of Anchorage's Municipal Airports Aviation Advisory Commission (MAAC), and was reappointed in October to a third term on the Muni's Public Safety Advisory Commission (PSAC).

MAAC receives reports from the airport manager and organizations related to municipal aviation activities and meets 6 times per year. The Commission makes recommendations to the Mayor and the Assembly.

PSAC identifies broad public safety issues of concern to the citizens of the municipality, and advises the Mayor and Assembly on these issues.  The Commission solicits input from the public and works closely with the Anchorage Police Department, Anchorage Fire Department, and Office of Emergency Management to identify trends and problems that may arise.

Dr. Chamard previously served six years on the Public Safety Advisory Commission, and was vice chair and chair.
