Chugach Electric Board appoints new Director

Engineer Stuart Parks to fill vacancy

Long-time Anchorage resident and electrical engineer Stuart Parks has been appointed to fill a vacancy on the Chugach Electric Association Board of Directors. The Chugach board appointed Parks to the seat at its January 26 meeting. Parks is replacing Bruce Dougherty who left in December 2016.

Parks has worked for NANA WorleyParsons, LLC for the past 12 years and is currently the Vice President, Director of Market and Program Manager.

“With more than 30 years’ experience in corporate leadership, project management, and engineering, Stuart will be an excellent addition to the Chugach board,” said Board Chair Janet Reiser. “He brings a number of important skills to the board, and we are pleased to welcome him to the team.”

Parks was selected by the board from a pool of 14 applicants who were interviewed in December.  In accordance with the Chugach bylaws, a member will be elected in the 2017 Chugach annual election to serve the three remaining years of Dougherty’s original four-year term. The Chugach Annual Meeting and Election is set for May 18 at the Dena’ina Civic & Convention Center.
