Harcharek to lead Voice of the Arctic IñupiatThe Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat said Sept. 23 that Nagruk Harcharek will serve as the organization’s new president. The Voice Executive Committee vote on his selection was unanimous.
Formerly the Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corp. vice president of private equity and arctic development, Harcharek will work with the Voice’s 24 member organizations to advance the organization’s four major goals:
1. Address and participate in legislation, regulations and government programs to protect Iñupiat culture.
2. Increase communication and information sharing amongst organizations of the North Slope.
3. Ensure the development of North Slope natural resources in a safe and responsible manner.
4. Promote Iñupiat stewardship of the North Slope and stimulate the North Slope economy.
“There is so much opportunity for us on the North Slope, and to help realize that opportunity is something I am looking forward to taking on. I am ready to jump in with the Board and Executive Committee to start tackling issues head on,” said Harcharek on his new role. “I am humbled by the Board and Executive Committee’s confidence in me and by the support I’ve already received from across the North Slope.”
“I am excited for Nagruk to lead the Voice as part of a new generation of leaders who will move our region forward,” said Rex A. Rock Sr., ASRC president and CEO and Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat Board chairman.
Justina Wilhelm, Iḷisaġvik College president and Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat Board vice president, said, “We welcome Nagruk to his role as president and are excited to reconnect with all of our members as we continue the great work serving our region.”
Voice of the Arctic Iñupiat was formed in 2015 as a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation, creating a communication network amongst Arctic Slope communities to establish a unified voice for their region and people. Today, their 24 member organizations work together to ensure that their collective voice is heard and respected - locally, regionally and nationally.
