The Sitka mobile enrollment center has been open since May 19 and will close on May 30.  It is located at Harrigan Centennial Hall.  The operating hours for this site have been designed to make it easier for the charter fleet and other tourism-related enrollees to take advantage of the center.  Note: This center will be open on Memorial Day. Hours: Mon-Tues 8:00a-5:00p  Wed-Fri  12:00p-9:00p
We anticipate that Cordova and Petersburg/Wrangell will be the next mobile enrollment centers.  I will keep everyone updated as to locations/dates as they are firmed up.
Note:  Please keep in mind that the recently announced change to the TWIC compliance date (April 15, 2009) is a NATIONAL compliance date and there's no guarantee  it will apply in Alaska.  Please do not delay enrolling in TWIC thinking you automatically have until April 2009 to comply!
