Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, Las Vegas, NV


The Tribal Leaders National Emergency Management Conference & FEMA Emergency Management Course will be held June 5th-6th, 2017 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

In our ongoing effort to keep tribes informed and safe, Native Nation Events is happy to welcome The National Tribal Emergency Management Council (NTEMC) to bring you critical topics, expert speakers and updates to support tribal leaders in ensuring their tribe’s wellbeing.

Over the course of two days, tribal leaders will learn about critical updates regarding the FEMA Tribal Consultation Policy, FEMA Tribal Policy and FEMA Tribal Pilot Guidance for Declarations. You’ll be introduced to the National Tribal Amateur Radio Association, along with several of the communications initiatives NTEMC is working on. This conference includes updates on FirstNet and an opportunity to meet the NTEMC staff. You’ll hear about projects that Tribal Emergency Managers are currently advancing and have an opportunity for Q&A following each day of the conference.

The Northwest Tribal Emergency Management Council (NWTEMC) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that was initially formed in 2004 as a consortium of Tribes in the Northwest region of Washington State to help Tribes participate in Homeland Security and Emergency Management preparedness efforts. In 2008, the NWTEMC incorporated for the purposes of information sharing and solidarity in dealing with homeland security/emergency management/public health issues as they pertain to Native Nations.  In 2010, the NWTEMC created the National Tribal Emergency Management Council bringing Tribes and Tribal emergency management organizations from around the Nation together to expand our efforts in sharing information and best practices and to discuss public safety, public health and homeland security issues affecting those in Indian Country. The mission of the NWTEMC-NTEMC is to remain committed to Sovereign Immunity, assisting our Tribal Nations with building infrastructure and internal capacity. NWTEMC-NTEMC would like to thank Native Nation Events for believing in the importance of their mission and allowing them the opportunity to bring this important training to you.
