Notice to  WA Tribal Representatives:

This Conference has always sponsored 2 (two) Tribal representatives, one from public health and one from emergency management, from each of the 29 federally-recognized Tribes of Washington State in the past. However, due to shrinking budgets and constraints that have been imposed on current grants, our Tribal Partners have voted to cover their own expenses this year.  Please reserve your room by calling 1-800-667-7711 with a credit card for incidentals. If you have attended in the past on this scholarship and will not be able to attend this year due to the loss of the room cost being covered, please contact Scholarships will be dependent on corporate sponsorship and available funding.

If you do not have access to a credit card to reserve your rooms, please contact Lynda, or 425-508-3967 for assistance.

Conference funding is very limited this year, but we may also be able to help sponsor additional tribal reps from outside of Washington, but again, these requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and subject to available funding. Please contact Lynda for additional information.


Conference Presentations and Materials

Agenda 2012 Tribal EP Conference

 Conference hours will be 9am-5pm each day, with breakfast served at 8am.

Information Kiosks:

The idea for the Kiosks is to provide tribes a “hands on” or  “one-on-one” discussion opportunity with knowledgeable staff about what is available and how they can use information to help their tribe.  We are most interested in Information Kiosks that will raise awareness to grants, resources, programs and personnel that are available to our Tribes before, during and following any type of event.

 If your agency or program is interested in having an information kiosks, please fill out page 2 of the Conference form
