City Clerk Dani Snider Receives Prestigious Award

City Clerk Danyielle Snider was presented with the “2017 Lighthouse Presidential Award” last week at the Alaska Association of Municipal Clerks Conference. The Clerk’s Office is many times the first encounter that residents have with the Fairbanks City government and Ms. Snider’s communication with the general public is exceptional and always with the highest level of professionalism. Ms. Snider has earned the respect and gratitude of all those she works with. She is a constant advocate for her staff and encourages them on a daily basis. On top of all that she does for the City of Fairbanks, she also currently chairs the AAMC Scholarship Committee which develops and oversees scholarship awards.

Congratulations, Dani!
