revisions, the deadline for proposals for new standards
or changes to existing standards is now 60 days prior to the
commencement of the meetings. For the Fall 2011
Standardization Cycle, the deadline for all
proposals was Thursday, 14 July 2011. Comments
or suggested modifications of proposals shall be sent to the
proponent of the proposal as soon as possible. Any
presentations or written materials to be discussed at the meetings
shall be distributed to the proponent, the Technical Committee, and

The meetings will take place at the
Hilton Anchorage Hotel

rate for the meeting is $129 per night (single/double) for a
standard guestroom. Other room types are available at
discounted rates for meeting attendees. State and Federal
government rates may be available to those who qualify.
Each person is responsible for making his or her own hotel
reservations. The cut-off date for hotel reservations
Wednesday, 10 August 2011. Please note that AWPA
receives discounts and complimentary meeting room space if our
attendees are staying at the host hotel, enabling AWPA to keep
its registration fees at relatively low rates. For this reason,
we encourage you to stay at the Hilton Anchorage Hotel.
Registration is open to any person who wishes to attend the
meetings. AWPA members, however, may register at deeply
discounted rates. If you are a non-member and wish to join
AWPA so that you may take advantage of the member rate, please

Registration entitles one to attend all technical committee
meetings and the nightly AWPA hospitality suite. Meals and
lodging are not
included. Please note that registering for the meeting does
not reserve a room for you at the hotel. You must make your
hotel reservations individually.

Local and Regional Activities
Many activities await those who wish to venture outside the
walls of the meeting room. If you plan to go hunting or
fishing, many lodges are already filling up and hunting guides
may be difficult to come by. If you wish, you might
contact guides we know, such as Ralph Meloon at
River Suites, or Rocky McElveen at
Adventures. They might be completely booked, but they
can probably steer you in the direction of reputable lodges or
guides. For hunting, bear is your best bet, and for
fishing, the time is right for rainbow trout and silver (coho)
salmon. If you plan to hunt or fish, plan your trip now!
Besides hunting or fishing, there is so much more to do, such
- taking a glacier day-cruise
- sightseeing by train
- driving up to Denali National Park
- and so much more!
NOTE: Meetings will NOT begin prior to their posted time.
