This will be the 28th annual Bureau of Indian Affairs Providers Conference. We have worked hard to provide new features for the conference in response to suggestions from our Tribes. The new Assistant Secretary of Indian Affairs has been invited to address our Tribes and we hope to get confirmation soon. Please continue to check our webpage for updates as we are able to solidify and publish details for the conference.
Registration will open at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 27.
There is no charge to attend the conference, but please ensure you register so there will be a name badge for you. Your name badge will serve as entry to all conference-related events.
The mission of the Alaska Region Bureau of Indian Affairs is to serve the Federally-Recognized Tribes in Alaska, which constitute more than forty percent of all tribes in the country. This year marks the 28th Providers Conference – it has withstood the test of time and grown tremendously in importance and participation over the years. This year we expect some 1,800 tribal representatives will register for this unique opportunity for training, technical assistance, information sharing and dynamic interaction with peers, professionals, subject matter experts, government officials, etc. The vast land area of Alaska Region and the large number of tribes make the annual Providers Conference an efficient and economical forum for serving tribes in this unique and challenging environment. BIA wishes you a rewarding, productive and safe Providers Conference. We are extending this opportunity at no cost for attendees.
