This morning's guests on Morning Line are Jerrod Anderson and Angela Jenkins, sharing about the Alaska Native Professionals Association.
Jenkins says the group meets regularly, in both Gatherings, which usually have educational themes and speakers and Mingles, which are more of a networking opportunity and social occasion.
Anderson says the group was started in 1998 as a way to network and support each other and share challenges and and triumphs as professionals in a marginalized community.
Jenkins says attending the meetings is only one of many opportunities for participation, including sponsorships, and membership in the organization, speaking at the Gatherings, and suggestions for venues.
Today's event is a Gathering, featuring speakers Mark John and Andrea Sanders, speaking about how traditional knowledge helped guide them through their professional careers.
