Due September 8, 2017 at 4 PM CST

The National Tribal Land Association is seeking proposals from venues interested in hosting the 9th Tribal Land Staff National Conference in March or April of 2019.

This conference brings together land professionals from Native American tribes and associated industries. The 2017 conference, hosted by NTLA and Indian Land Tenure Foundation, was held in March at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico. The 2018 conference will be held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tulsa, owned by the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma.

The RFP is open to venues that can accommodate 250-400 individuals.

All proposals must be received no later than 4 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time on September 8th, 2017 at the National Tribal Land Association, 151 East County Road B2, Little Canada, MN 55117.

The 1st Annual Tribal Land Staff National Conference was held in 2011, with a gathering of 100 tribal land staff from every region of the country meeting for the first time as a national group in Las Vegas, Nevada. Since then, the conference continues to grow and in 2014 started moving through Indian Country, starting in Minnesota; then to Southern California; before moving to northern Idaho in 2016 and on to New Mexico for 2017.
