The 8th Annual White House Tribal Nations Conference is coming up soon!  If you are interested in attending the Conference and surrounding events, it is critical to make your hotel reservations NOW!  On Saturday, September 24 is the opening of the National Museum of  African American Art and Culture on the Mall and it will be a huge event with President  Obama speaking at the opening.   As with the opening of the NMAI, there will be several days of events.    Also on Saturday the 24th is the National Book Festival at the Convention Center which draws about 100,000 people although that might not affect hotel reservations.  These events will cause travel overlap and shortage of in-town hotel rooms.

The 8th Annual White House Tribal Nations Conference will be held on September 26-27, 2016 in Washington DC. This will be President Obama’s eighth Tribal Nations Conference, bringing tribal leaders from across the country to interact directly with high-level federal government officials and members of the White House Council on Native American Affairs.

NCAI will co-host a Tribal Leaders Preparatory Meeting on Sunday, September 25, 2016 from 10:00am-5:00pm. The meeting will be at the Washington Plaza Hotel located at 10 Thomas Cir, NW, Washington, DC 20005.  There will also be a reception following the Conference.
