John Burns, Chairman of the Board of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) will be the guest speaker at the September Chamber of Commerce luncheon. AGDC is a corporation creat-ed by the State of Alaska to plan, construct, and fi-nance a natural gas line in Alaska.
He will give the group some insight into the Alaska Stand Alone Pipeline, the TransCanada agreement that was recently terminated, and the State’s possible role in a natural gas export line. Take this opportunity to learn how these projects might impact those of us living in and around Delta Junction.
Burns also serves as legal council to GVEA and is a partner in the law firm Burns & Associates. He also is an adjunct faculty member at the University of Alaska Fairbanks where he teaches graduate and undergraduate business law classes and is a former Attorney General for the State of Alaska.
Burns received a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) and a juris doctorate from the University of Puget Sound School of Law.
The luncheon will be held at the Trophy Lodge on Thursday, Sept. 18. Lunch will begin at noon with the presentation beginning shortly thereafter.
