PLEASE NOTE: This Tribal Consultation Training course will be held concurrently with the SAIGE NTP in the same location. It is a separate 3-day intensive with its own registration cost and process through DOI Learn. It is not offered as part of the SAIGE NTP. SAIGE is a cooperating partner that is offering to host this training at our contracted facility.
If you are a federal employee not employed by DOI, or are a tribal government employee, you can still attend this popular course. Please see the attached flyer with information on how to do this.
SAIGE is very pleased to coordinate with DOI University for this training at the We Ko Pa Resort and Conference Center this year. SAIGE looks forward to working more in the future with DOI and the National Indian Programs Training Center to encourage employees to get the important training they need to conduct business with tribes properly.
If you have any questions concerning this course, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or April Gonzalez at the National Indian Programs Training Center, contact info on the flyer.
Thank you – Lori
