Anchorage – Arctic Winter Games Team Alaska welcomes Tim Dillon of Seldovia as the President of its Board of Directors.  Dillon has been a member of the Team Alaska Board of Directors since 2007.

Dillon is the City Manager of Seldovia, and brings over 3 decades of experience in the sports and entertainment field.  He served as General Manager at the 2006 Arctic Winter Games on the Kenai Peninsula, which is still considered one of the most successful events in the 30-year history of the games.

Born and raised in the New Jersey area with a Masters in Administration, Dillon came to Alaska in 1992, and held the role of Athletic Director and Vice Chancellor of UAA until 1999.  He has chaired or attended to over 14 different NCAA committees, including the NCAA council, and is the past President of the Pac West Conference.

Of the appointment, Lieutenant Governor Mead Treadwell states, “Tim Dillon has a demonstrated track record of building first class athletic teams and athletic events.  As Alaska is host of the next Arctic Winter Games, I am glad he’s on board.  To be sure, Alaska will have a tremendous showing as host and competitor.”

The Team Alaska board and staff welcome Tim Dillon, and look forward to progressively advancing state-wide and international athletics for Alaska’s youth.
