Eric Stahlke, LS, is the survey manager for Tanana Chiefs Conference, Fairbanks, Alaska. He has surveyed extensively with GNSS since 1992.
The Tanana Chiefs Conference is a traditional tribal consortium of the 42 villages of interior Alaska. TCC is a non-profit organization that works toward meeting the health and social service needs of more than 10,000 Alaska Natives spread across a region of 235,000 square miles. Its name comes from the village located at "Nuchalawoya," the place where the Tanana and the Yukon rivers meet, and where Athabascan leaders have met for thousands of years to discuss tribal matters.
