How does PSEA function?

PSEA Local 803 formulates corporation by-laws and policies through a Corporate Board of Directors. Advising the corporate board are separate Chapter Boards representing Airport Police & Fire Officers, Municipal Public Safety, and State Law Enforcement Officers. Each chapter has representatives on the Corporate Board.

PSEA also has several committees that participate in the various scopes of the legislative process in the ongoing fight to increase work conditions for public safety employees in Alaska. These committees are staffed by both PSEA staff and voting PSEA members.

The Public Safety Employees Association is presently staffed by an Executive Director, a General Counsel, a Business Agent, and a Bookkeeper. The PSEA staff are happy to serve their members. PSEA strives to provide resources and knowledge to its members that will aid in the continuing goal towards a better future.
