Meet Your Board of Directors Member:

Norm Piispanen

I grew up in the lake country of north central Minnesota. I have trapped since I was old enough to set one, even though it interfered with milking cows. I paid for my first year of college with savings from picking wild rice and trapping. I came to Alaska in 1970 by way of the draft. I worked, played, raised kids and retired here.

Trapping has been an important part of my life. I want to see it continue to be a viable and productive aspect of our community, the state and the nation. It always seems to be an uphill political and social issue. It's important to me that the struggle never be lost. The ATA is our most effective means to support that effort. I previously served on the Board of Directors from 1988 - 1990. I look forward to serving again.
