Honolulu, HI— AMERIND Risk and the National American Indian Housing Council (NAIHC) will host a combined event in May of 2016. The two Native American-strong organizations work only to benefit Indian country. By collaborating, AMERIND Risk and the NAIHC will offer extensive training options with lower travel costs. Interested parties and individuals are encouraged to register immediately. This is an exciting opportunity to network with hundreds of Tribal leaders and housing professionals as we anticipate over 800 attendees from across Indian country.
With over 41 years of experience in capacity building and advocating for Indian Housing, NAIHC will be providing updates on legislative and policy issues, as well as training covering the topics most relevant to running an effective housing program. Past tracks have included financial resources for housing development, housing management tools and administration and protecting tribal housing investments.
Founded almost 30 years ago, over 400 Tribes united and pooled their resources to create AMERIND Risk to keep money within Indian country. AMERIND Risk provides property, liability, workers ’ compensation and employee benefits for Tribes, Tribal governments, Tribal businesses, and individual property coverage. It is the only 100-percent Tribally owned insurance solutions provider in Indian country — “Tribes Protecting Tribes”.
This educational forum may feature sessions that will cover claims, human resources, Tribal workers’ compensation, protecting Tribal governments and businesses, workplace safety issues, and housing programs. In addition, both organizations will be conducting chairman elections for their Board of Directors.
There will be training to suit the needs of entire programs. Sponsorship and exhibit opportunities are also available. AMERIND and the NAIHC invite you to join them at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, May 8-11, 2015, in Honolulu, Hawaii.
