Petersburg’s tribal administrator takes job leading United Fishermen of Alaska by Joe Viechnicki December 02,2021   |  Source: KFSK - Petersburg

A statewide commercial fishing industry trade group has hired Petersburg Indian Association’s tribal administrator as its next executive director.

Tracy Welch, 34, is wrapping up work with Petersburg’s tribe this week and starts at United Fishermen of Alaska on Dec. 7. UFA advocates for the industry and represents commercial fishing groups from the Bering Sea to Seattle.

Welch said she was able to attend the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle in November with UFA members.

“It was a good chance to meet some of the board of directors and some of the fishermen from around the state and on the west coast,” Welch said. “So definitely something a little bit out of my wheelhouse, but it’s going to be nice to go back to working for and with fishermen, too.”
