TULSA, OK – The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Native American 40 under 40 awards at River Spirit Casino Resort in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 29-30. The event ‘ “Impacting Generations: Honoring a Decade of Exceptional Service and Leadership” – will be held in conjunction with the National Center’s next Native Edge Institute (NEI), which is a one-day training session focused specifically on procurement. Details on the next NEI will be released in the coming weeks.

Past and present 40 under 40 awardees will have the opportunity to participate in programming designed specifically for and by them, with the goal of providing additional professional development, networking, leadership, and mentorship opportunities. Programming will be led by 40 under 40 winners but open to any registrant. 2018 is the first time the National Center is convening an event and programming geared specifically for 40 under 40 winners.

“The National Center is proud to celebrate the hundreds of deserving 40 under 40 winners from the last 10 years,” said Chris James, President and CEO of the National Center. “These events will honor current leaders and help groom future ones through programming designed by 40 under 40 winners. We hope you will join us for informative sessions, networking opportunities, and celebrating those who have made contributions to our communities.”

The Native American 40 under 40 award is one of the most prestigious awards in Indian Country, honoring 40 Native American or Alaska Native leaders under the age of 40 who have already made significant contributions to their communities through business, academia, arts and entertainment, elected office, law, or other fields. The 2018 event will honor the 2018 class of 40 under 40 winners and convene past winners for focused programming and networking opportunities. The current class of winners will be honored at an awards dinner on the evening of the 30th.
