About Us

The Alaska State Society is 501(c)(4) non-profit, non-partisan organization with a social, civic, and support mission, serving an active membership of more than 300 Alaskans and friends of Alaska living in the Washington, DC area. The Society is an affiliate of the National Conference of State Societies

Who We Are

Many of us came to Washington to work in the government or military; some to attend school; others found jobs in companies and organizations with Alaska ties, and still others followed love interests or other pursuits that led them to DC. Regardless of how we got here, we all make a point of getting together several times a year to celebrate our common love of the 49th State.

What We Do

The Society hosts an Inaugural Gala every four years, an annual Anchorage vs. The-Rest-of-Alaska softball game and picnic, regular Taste of Alaska get-togethers, and a variety of other Alaska-themed events.
