Are you attending RES 2018? Do you have questions about the future of Indian Country Today? You can meet with Mark Trahant tonight at 6 pm PST at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas’ Starbucks.
This week, the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (the National Center) opened its 32nd annual Reservation Economic Summit (RES) in Las Vegas. The event is being held at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
In addition to providing news coverage while he is in attendance, Mark Trahant, the new editor of Indian Country Today, will be hosting a question and answer session in the hotel’s Starbucks coffee beginning at 6 pm PST.
“The reason we are hosting this meet-up at with folks in Indian country at the 32nd annual Reservation Economic Summit, is because I believe sincerely in transparency. A lot of business organizations, tribal governments and journalists are asking about the new trajectory of Indian Country Today, and we want to be available to answer those questions,” said Trahant.
Trahant also said Indian Country Today intends to host additional question and answer sessions in the near future on such platforms as Google Hangouts so that the editorial staff (Mark Trahant, editor and Vincent Schilling, associate editor) can answer questions.
For those interested in attending the Q&A and meet up with Mark Trahant, no reservation is necessary.
The Q&A will take place in the Starbucks coffee shop in the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas.
