The NNAHRA Conference is a little more than a month away and I look forward to being both a speaker and a participant at a fantastic virtual conference.  The conference agenda includes a really smart mix of COVID related practical sessions while at the same time the conference will deliver practical solutions to the other short term and long term issues confronted by human resources.

I look forward to the legal update, the keynote speeches, numerous compelling breakouts and an update from President Wright and the Board.

I have talked to several attendees and the response has been the same:  “The Human Resources Department has had a very stressful year and we need an opportunity to get away, learn about the solutions to practical issues, and recharge our batteries with our NNAHRA colleagues.”

I look forward to talking to you at the Conference to better understand the best practices implemented by tribal employers in this difficult time.  But before we talk, can I buy the virtual coffee?  I need caffeine.

Please join me in congratulating the NNAHRA Board and Team NNAHRA for bringing us together in late September to address the important work done in human resources.  Grateful.  There is an information filled page about the Conference and an opportunity to register at  Click on the “Events” page.
