A Message From Derek Valdo, CEO T hank you for your overwhelming support in attending the 2015 AMERIND Risk | National American Indian Housing Council (NAIHC) Convention & Tradeshow. The successful annual convention in May had almost 700 attendees and 50 vendor booths. General session attendees heard from President and CEO of the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development, Gary “Litefoot” Davis. His message encouraged attendees to remember the importance of keeping dollars in Indian Country for economic development and sustainability. The Principal Deputy Secretary for the Office of Public and Indian Housing, Lourdes Castro Ramirez, addressed Indian Country and stated her commitment to communication with Tribal professionals. Another highlight was the presentation of a $200,000 check from our Chairman, Phil Bush, and our Board of Directors, to NAIHC for advocacy, continued support, community development, infrastructure and housing. The trainings were highly attended and we received positive feedback from attendees. We will be joining forces again and hosting a collaborative annual convention with NAIHC in early May of 2016 in Hawaii. We will continue to keep you updated for the annual convention, and our 30th anniversary! The 2015 AMERIND Institute is now open for registration. It will be held October 6-8, 2015 during the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival. This will be another great opportunity for Indian Country to take part in Tribal specific trainings, which will benefit their communities. The meeting venue will be the Isleta Resort & Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico, 10 miles south of the Albuquerque International Airport. This annual educational forum will provide professional development, training, and networking opportunities for Tribal leaders and business professionals in Indian Country. The 2015 Institute provides an ideal forum to stimulate ideas, collaborate, and continue to work together for our common cause of - Tribes Protecting Tribes.
