Celebrating Success, Shaping the Future
The Self Governance Communication & Education Tribal Consortium (SGCETC), Department of the Interior (DOI) and the Indian Health Service (IHS) will host the 2016 Annual Tribal Self-Governance Consultation Conference April 24-29, 2016 at the Buena Vista Resort & Spa in Orlando, Florida. Self-Governance Tribes, those interested in Self-Governance, Federal partners, and Tribal organizations should attend the conference to participate in the national discussion, to share best practices and to network with Self-Governance Tribal leaders, coordinators, and advocates.
This year’s theme, “Tribal Self-Governance -Celebrating Success, Shaping the Future” is setting the precedent for the future of Self-Governance, while recognizing past success. As we celebrate our 28th year of Self-Governance we look to the future and the new Presidential administration to initiate much needed changes to policies and legislation. Self-Governance Tribes must not only look to the future, but must also reflect on our collective history to have a positive impact for future generations. Given our recent successes, the advancement of Self-Governance has never been as important as it is now.
The 2016 Tribal Self-Governance Annual Consultation Conference will provide a forum for Tribes to gather, to communicate collective concerns and experiences, to share in strategies, to forge new relationships, and to work to improve tomorrow. Please join SGCETC to secure the future success of Self-Governance.
