Future Host City Info

Conference Host City Application


How excited we are to give your organization and community the opportunity to host the annual Alaska Recreation and Parks Association!  Here are just a few reasons to consider hosting in your community.

Support Your Economy: Shoulder season financial boost for local businesses and services.  Hotels, food, gas, entertainment…the list goes on. Your community leaders will love this!

Networking:  There are no better ways to make new connections, partnerships, and share ideas/tips/solutions than at an ARPA conference.

Promote Tourism:  Ideally, the participants will return to your community again on their own dime and time with more people.

Education:  Help fellow ARPA members and sponsors understand where you are, what your organization does and what is happening in your community. Showcase your organizations and community.

Recreation:  Show us what is fun in your community. We are in the business of playing!

Give Back:  Hosting a conference is like hosting a special event that requires some planning.  Fortunately, many ARPA members have hosted conferences in the past and are always willing to help if needed.  We want to visit your community.

Please submit your application HERE and note that the request to host the conference is for two consecutive years.

All the best,
Alaska Recreation & Park Association Board Members
