Blumer and Associates
Credibility, good relationships, and hard work are very important elements of successful lobbying.
Dianne Blumer, principal of the company, is a homegrown Alaskan with 26 years of executive and legislative experience. She brings an array of professional experience with executive and legislative branches of state government. In addition to her recent experience as Chief of Staff and Senior Policy Advisor with the Alaska State Legislature, she served as the Commissioner of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development managing issues including Alaska labor laws, Workers Compensation, vocational rehabilitation and workforce development.
The program: positive and substantially changed the lives of otherwise misguided individuals.
As Commissioner, an extensive understanding of the legislative and state administrative processes is essential.
Lobbying the legislature and testifying on programs and the Department’s budget was obligatory on a regular basis.
Dianne worked closely with the members of local governments to ensure the program funding was distributed to best meet the workforce development needs of Alaska.
Prior to becoming the Director, Dianne had served as a Labor Relations Analyst for many years, where she was chief negotiator on state labor contracts and chief advocate in arbitrations. This experience requires extensive knowledge in all aspects of the state employee relations, retirement benefits, labor laws, and negotiated agreements.
