2019 AWPA Technical Committee Meetings:
Anchorage, Alaska - September 15-18, 2019
Towering mountains, sparkling glaciers, amazing wildlife, and
the AWPA Fall Technical Committee Meetings are the best of what
Anchorage has to offer! From the serene waters of Cook
Inlet to the natural wonders of the Chugach, Anchorage is your
base for an incredible adventure.
AWPA previously met in Anchorage
in September 2011, and the committee members have once again
chosen Anchorage as the site for the 2019 Technical Committee meetings. While the primary
focus of the meetings is the development of standards, be sure to come
early or stay late and explore the surrounding area.
Alaska is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many.
