Billings Sheraton Hotel in Billings

The Native American Development Corporation is hosting the Montana Wyoming Tribal Economic Development Summit, which will be held March 23,
24, and 25 at the Billings Sheraton Hotel in Billings.

The purpose of this annual event is to initiate or encourage economic
development for Native Americans by providing educational opportunities,
marketing opportunities, housing opportunities and networking
opportunities for Indian Businesses, Tribes, Government Agencies,
Corporations, and Economic Development Practitioners.

NADC believes
that, as Indians we need to become independent and self sufficient on an
individual basis and on a Tribal basis. Our goal is to assist Native
people in their efforts to improve their quality of life and their
children’s quality of life.

Please consider attending the Montana Wyoming Tribal Economic
Development Summit.
