Bill Bivin Award
Bill Bivin was the Executive Director of the Bethel Native Corporation during the late 80’s and 90’s. He had just become Chairman of the Board of the State Chamber of Commerce when he was killed in a plane crash in 1993. Bill was a very active member of the Bethel Chamber of Commerce. He was a very effective leader and promoted small business. It is in his honor that we make an award each year to a local citizen for their contribution to our community. The Bill Bivin Award is presented to an individual who exemplies a citizen through volunteer work that is most significant to the community.
