Don’t miss out on ENLS2016 this Fall! ENLS is a program that takes some of the best and the brightest Native American emerging leaders and gives them knowledge and tools to stand out amongst the rest. This is a program for individuals who dream to push themselves to be the best Tribal Leader, Project Manager, CEO, or Entrepreneur they can be.
NACA puts together a great program that provides training on the topics of Business Basics, Understanding Industry, and Indian Law and Advocacy. The trainings are provided by subject matter experts in each respective field. This is the chance to develop and sharpen your skills and learn the most up to date information to impact your success in business. Along with trainings, you will hear from keynote speakers and attend a networking reception with hill staff, business leaders, and local organization leadership. This year NACA has partnered with the Center for Native American Youth on the GenerationIndigenous (GenI) initiative to help remove the barriers that stand between Native youth and their opportunity to succeed.
We look forward to working with you. Come and be a part of this phenomenal program to learn and workshop with your peers!
