2017 Sponsor Opportunities

More than fifty years ago a small group of representatives met for the first statewide gathering of Native peoples, which became the Alaska Federation of Natives. That first meeting addressed land claims and since then has grown in size and scope, both in the issues addressed and in number of delegates participating. Today’s conventions bring together an estimated 5,000 attendees, with thousands more tuning in to the statewide television and radio broadcasts and watching online.

Our 2017 convention theme, “Strength In Unity: Leadership—Partnerships—Social Justice,” underlines the vital importance of AFN’s partnerships with the business community, particularly through sponsorship of the AFN Convention. Open to the public, our annual event is the largest meeting of its kind in Alaska and, with our dedicated sponsors’ help, brings together thousands of Alaska Native individuals, businesses and organizations, observers and special guests from around the globe.
