Permit Types



Non-Profits seeking a Special Event or Wine Auction Permit


The most common error AMCO sees on Special Event and Wine Auction permit applications is outdated information with Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing(CBPL). Prior to applying for a permit, we strongly encourage you to review your non-profit entity and ensure your non-profit is in good standing, officials are up to date, and if required, the entity has filed its biennial report.

AMCO will return permit applications that do not match the CBPL database. If your non-profit information is outdated, contact CBPL to file the necessary paperwork.

If you are short for time, you may include a copy of the forms submitted to CBPL with your permit application to show the updated information.

To find your entity information for Special Event and Wine Auction Permits, please visit the State of Alaska Corporations, Business, and Professional Licensing Database
