)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: What Does the Future Hold for Tribal Governments Under the New Administration? A 2017 Update. This two-hour event is scheduled on May 18, 2017 at 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM (ET).
As tribal nations continue to make strides asserting their sovereign authority and expanding their economies, there has been a greater focus on federal Indian policy and the scope of the federal trust obligation. Tribes have expanded their government relations activities in Washington, D.C., while other entities have expressed concern for tribal rights. A new presidential administration means new opportunities for tribes in such areas as infrastructure and economic development, but it also brings new challenges, such as possible cuts in federal Indian program funding.
In this live Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will explain how new players and new policies are likely to usher in important changes affecting tribal governments and economies. Speakers will also offer insights on the key opportunities and challenges to look out for.
Key Topics Include
Overview of Tribal Government
Federal Indian Policy
Expectations for Trump Administration
Tribal Labor Sovereignty
Hobbs, Straus, Dean & Walker, LLP
Gregory A. Smith
National Congress of American Indians
Schwabe Williamson & Wyatt
Sarah Roubidoux Lawson
