CATOOSA, Okla. – Cherokee Nation Businesses will host the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development’s Reservation Economic Summit Oklahoma on July 11-14 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.

According to the RES Oklahoma website, the event will feature access to tribal leaders, members of Congress, federal agency representatives, state and local elected officials and top CEOs on a national platform. The website also states attendees will benefit from networking, teaming opportunities and business development sessions.

“We are honored to partner with the National Center (for American Indian Enterprise Development) in hosting the annual RES conference at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, as we are the heart of Indian Country here in Oklahoma,” CNB Executive Vice President Chuck Garrett said. “This is an opportunity for our most visionary economic leaders to share innovative ideas, successful practices and create new business development possibilities. Creating business growth and quality jobs infuses our tribal communities with new revenue while making all of Indian Country stronger and more formidable than ever.”

A one-day entrepreneurship boot camp is also scheduled for the summit. According to the website, the camp is a series of four 90-minute hands-on, interactive experiential-learning based workshops with two facilitators at each workshop.

“Participants will learn the nuts and bolts of planning, launching and managing the early-stage growth of a new enterprise. They will receive useful information, frameworks and concepts that they can apply to their own enterprises or in their work supporting those of others,” the website states. “They will have the opportunity to brainstorm, work in teams and develop a model business in real-time. They will also learn communications and presentation skills, and see the business planning process through from concept to goal.”

The summit will also hold a capital fair, procurement expo, business tradeshow, art market and golf tournament.

According to its website, the NCAIED is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with more than 40 years of assisting American Indian tribes and their respective enterprises with business and economic development.

It is the largest national Indian-specific business organization in the nation with a mission to develop and expand an American Indian private sector that employs Indian labor, increases the number of viable tribal and individual Indian businesses and positively impacts and involves reservation communities by establishing business relationships between Indian enterprises and private industry.

Oklahoma is home to more than 30 American Indian tribes and nations, including the Cherokee Nation. For more information or to register, visit http://res.ncaied.org, call 480-545-1298 or email info@ncaied.org.
