Mark Begich is not in the Senate anymore, but he is keeping busy working on policy issues close to his, and his home state of Alaska’s, heart.
“If you were traveling with us in rural Alaska this week you might not have differentiated it from work versus me being in the Senate — everything from photos and selfies, to presentations, to talking with folks on issues that are unrelated or concerns that they have about generally the government,” the Democrat told CQ Roll Call recently.
Begich started his own consulting firm, Northern Compass Group, which focuses on business development, tribal issues, aviation and travel, fisheries and housing.
He also consults for Brownstein Hyatt as a strategic policy adviser.
In case that wasn’t enough, the former mayor of Anchorage and son of the late Rep. Nick Begich, is on the leadership team at the National Association for Home Care & Hospice as vice president for policy and development and is president and CEO of the Foundation for Hospice and Homecare and the dean of NAHC’s HomeCare University.
