The National Center for American Indian Enterprise is excited to return to where it all began when we host our second RES Regional event in California! We will continue the momentum created at our National RES Las Vegas 2013 event with electrifying general sessions, entertainment, networking receptions, thought-provoking breakout sessions, a business trade show, artisan market, all held within this three-day multifaceted regional economic development conference. Tribal leaders, state and local elected officials, top CEO’s, established or aspiring Native American business owners, and many more all come together to learn, brainstorm, collaborate, and network in the innovative and motivational atmosphere that is created at the NCAIED’S RES events.
