Collection summary: Records related to the organization and activities of Anchorage Community Councils.
The Federation of Community Councils of Anchorage is a non-profit organization created in 1978 to provide support to neighborhood community councils. Anchorage neighborhood community councils were authorized through a provision of the municipal charter for the Municipality of Anchorage, passed by voters in 1975. There are currently 38 different active neighborhood community councils representing the interests of citizens of the municipality in Anchorage, Eagle River, and Girdwood. The federation has a board of delegates representing the councils which dictates how the federation’s executive board and the community councils center operates and serves the councils.
The collection consists of the records of the Federation of Community Councils of Anchorage. The records are divided into six series: 1) administrative files; 2) mailings files; 3); historical files; 4) neighborhood councils files; 5) federation newsletters; and 6) audio recordings of board of delegates meetings. The administrative records contain board of delegates meeting minutes, meeting agendas and packets, executive board meeting files, committee records, and various other files of the councils center. The mailings files contain various documents mailed out of the councils center (1978-1986). The historical files contain documents concerning the development of the federation and a scrapbook of items concerning federation activities (2000-2004). The neighborhood councils files include newsletters, minutes, correspondence, announcements, membership lists and notes for each council. The federation’s newsletters consist of monthly issues of Neighbor to Neighbor (1976-2000) and Pulse Community & Shopping News (2000-2001). The audio recordings of the board of delegates meetings consist of 114 different audiocassettes for meetings held from 1997 to 2004.
