Rockville, Md. — For-hire transportation fleet operators will head to Alaska from July 12-15 for the annual leadership conference hosted by the Taxicab, Limousine & Paratransit Association (TLPA). Hosted in Anchorage, the TLPA Mid-Year International Leadership Conference will kick off with a cocktail reception for all attendees on July 12.

This is the first time in more than two decades that the TLPA has hosted a meeting in Alaska. The conference will be held at the distinctive Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage. With views of Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains, the distinctive Hotel Captain Cook was recently inducted into the Historic Hotels of America, the official travel organization of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

This is always one of the most intimate gatherings of any TLPA event, and it’s where participants can rub elbows with some of the brightest and most successful operators I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.”

Operators who are new to TLPA can now take advantage of a 50 percent discount on membership dues for 2017.
