Hello to Alaskan clubs,

CDMA is happy to announce that we have been selected to host the 2018 Annual ISDRA conference June 22-24!  It has been 20 years since Alaska hosted the Annual ISDRA conference (1997 in Fairbanks).

We want to make sure we include all Alaskan clubs and invite you to offer any suggestions or help you have.

Typically, these conferences include a symposium on Saturday with speakers, vendors, a silent auction, and an evening dinner banquet on Saturday night.

Please consider donating any items for the silent auction (i.e. pins, hats, posters, t-shirts, memorabilia, beadwork) – all items are welcome. 80% of the proceeds will support ISDRA and their mission to ……

We would love to have an Alaskan club or organization host the morning coffee break or afternoon coffee break, or the Friday evening meet and greet.

We are trying to keep the cost of attending reasonable to attract not only ISDRA members or sprint drivers, but also mushers and working dog enthusiasts from all over the state.

This event will be hosted at UAA Gorsuch Hall.  We have negotiated rates at UAA (yes, dorm rooms!) to keep it affordable for all to participate.

Please plan on joining us!!

More news to follow via our FB event page, but wanted to give you all the first scoop!

Please feel free to reach out with any and all ideas, info, suggestions or donations!

Deanna Partow

Event coordinator
