SAIGE 11th Annual National Training Program—Albuquerque, NM

The Society of American Indian Government Employees (SAIGE) will hold its 11th annual National Training Program, Native Pride and Spirit: Yesterday, Today and Forever, at the Isleta Pueblo’s Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 9-13, 2014. The training provides forums on the most current issues, opportunities, and challenges facing American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) government employees, the AI/AN tribes and the people we serve. The plenary sessions offer acclaimed and dynamic presenters and the developmental workshops are presented by knowledgeable speakers. Workshops are designed in these areas: Federal Indian Law, Leadership and Professional Development, and Indian Country. Networking opportunities with tribal and governmental leadership abound over the course of the Training Program.

SAIGE hosts an all-expense paid Youth Program designed to develop AI/AN college students into the next generation of leaders and introduce them to prosperous and fulfilling career paths in Government.  Recruiters from private and public sectors will have the opportunity to participate as exhibitors, meet the students, and promote career opportunities within their agencies and organizations. Youth Program scholarships are limited, so students are encouraged to apply soon. Applications may be found on the SAIGE website at under Youth Track News.

SAIGE proudly supports its Veterans Program developed for and by veterans that offers training specific to the needs of AI/AN veterans by highlighting available federal benefits and providing attending veterans exposure to varied employment options. The Veterans’ Program facilitates collaboration and partnership opportunities among veterans, agencies that serve them and veterans’ organizations. The Veterans’ Program is open to all SAIGE registrants and is free to local area veterans.
