The members of Women Police in Alaska (WPA) are honored and excited to have been selected to host the 2019 International Association of Women Police (IAWP) Conference in Anchorage. Anchorage was fortunate enough to be the site of the 1985 and 1998 conferences, both highly successful in meeting the financial, training, and networking goals. The 2016 conference held in Barcelona, Spain had over 400 women officers representing 91 countries. The 2017 conference held in Cairns, Australia set a record for attendance with over 500 officers. The 2018 conference is being held in Calgary, Canada where WPA representatives will attend to promote the 2019 conference here in Anchorage. IAWP training conferences are known for outstanding training and networking experiences.

We are endeavoring to provide our conference attendees with excellent training, cultural events, vendor booths, and lots of opportunities for networking. We have selected our theme, Mentoring the Next Generation, which has both broad appeal across the continents and is one of the missions of our organization.

We are seeking your help in making this conference a success. There are many ways in which you can demonstrate your support of women in law enforcement and be a part of this amazing international conference. The sponsorship packet provides details of just some of the opportunities available. We welcome the chance to discuss personalized support and promotional packages with you. Any financial or in-kind support is appreciated.

We envision this conference will bring over $700,000.00 worth of business to Anchorage. We look forward to showcasing Alaska’s spirited community for the trailblazing women from around the world and encourage you to take part. The hundreds of attendees who will be enjoying the hospitality of Anchorage bring an unparalleled opportunity for international recognition for all our sponsors.

We look forward to hearing from you.
