Charles Clement is an experienced Alaska-based business executive who has been serving as the president and chief executive officer of the SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) since 2012. Outside of his responsibilities at SEARHC, Charles Clement actively supports charitable organizations such as Alaska Children’s Trust (ACT).

Since its inception in 1988, ACT has advocated for the prevention of child abuse and neglect in Alaska. Although the organization hosts numerous programs aligned to its mission, one of its defining programs is Prevent Child Abuse Alaska.

A state chapter of Chicago-based national organization Prevent Child Abuse America, Prevent Child Abuse Alaska is committed to ensuring the healthy development of children statewide. Working with its partner chapters from other states, the program fights for the existence of a national policy framework that could promote evidence-based strategies aimed at curbing the incidence of abuse and neglect. The Alaskan chapter leverages access to resources and relationships across the country to adopt best practices for its own use.
