The 4th Annual White House Tribal Nations Summit will be held on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012. During the Summit, tribal leaders from across the nation will once again convene in Washington, DC to discuss key tribal priorities with high-level members of the Obama administration.

As in past years, NCAI will co-host a Tribal Leaders Prepatory Meeting on Tuesday, December 4th from 5-7pm. The meeting will be at the Four Points Sheraton. NCAI will also host a tribal leader prepatory teleconference on Friday, November 30th at 1pm Eastern to assist tribal leaders in preparing for the Summit. 

The Tribal Nations Summit continues to serve as one of the leading forums for direct and substantive dialogue between tribal leaders and key administration officials. The voice of every tribal nation is crucial in this dialogue and we hope you will join us in the nation's capital for this important opportunity.
