Criteria for Nominations

Nominations for Anchorage ATHENA Society members are solicited from the community at large. Inductees are selected based on the recognition of their outstanding leadership and excellence in their business or profession, their community service outside of job requirements and that they are known for assisting women to reach their full leadership potential. They must also work in Anchorage. The nominations are screened by a selection committee comprised of past award Recipients.

Nominations will open on January 10, 2022.

2022 Luncheon

It’s 2022 – a new year with new ambitions and hopes for moving forward in these pandemic times. For three decades, the local ATHENA chapter has worked, with the backing of the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce,  to encourage the potential of all women as valued members and leaders of our Anchorage Community.  Our signature event is the recognition of those who meet this standard by inducting these leaders into the Anchorage ATHENA Society. Due to COVID, we did not select a class for 2021 but we are this year determined not to let it define us.

Nominations for the Anchorage ATHENA Society class of 2022 are now open and are due no later than Feb 15th. Consider making a nomination.

Our “almost” traditional luncheon will be held between 11:30 and 1 pm on Monday, March 21st at the Dena’ina Center. Tickets are $50 per person; tables of only 6 people are $300 and can be purchased on the Chamber website.  Should future COVID outbreaks require the event to be cancelled or moved to a Zoom event, ticket money will be refunded.

The event will follow all local mandates and recommendations to keep everyone safe and healthy. We request that only those who are fully vaccinated attend, but everyone will be on their honor to abide by this request.  The ATHENA volunteers and greeters will be masked; attendees will be encouraged to arrive wearing masks but obviously since we will be eating and drinking, attendees will not be expected to wear a mask during the event.
