(2) a list of its members;

(3) the name and address of a resident of this state upon whom notices or orders of the director or process issued at the direction of the director may be served; and

(4) an agreement that the director may examine the advisory organization in accordance with AS 21.39.120 .

(c) If, after a hearing, the director finds that the furnishing of the information or assistance involves an act or practice that is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with this chapter, the director may issue a written order specifying in what respects the act or practice is unfair or unreasonable or otherwise inconsistent with this chapter, and requiring the discontinuance of the act or practice.
