IMNâ€™s Native American Finance Conference (NAFC) returns to Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Ledyard, Connecticut for its Ninth installment. NAFC East â€™08 promises to be our biggest East Coast conference to date. IMNâ€™s NAFC events have become the forum for the sharing of ideas and information related to Native American financial issues. You can expect thought provoking panel discussions from top notch speakers, combined with excellent networking opportunities. NAFC East brings together Tribal finance leaders with representatives from Wall Streetâ€™s leading investment banks and legal experts for two days of discussion on financial issues facing Indian Country. In addition, several Tribal associations and organizations such as NIGA, NCAI, NTDA, NARF, AFOA, SCRCA, NCAIED and NAFOA, to name a few, have been active participants at all of our NAFC events. The conference serves Tribes that are advanced in their financial holdings and dealings and that want to expand their knowledge base in order to protect the futures of their Tribes. In addition, the NAFC East includes basic finance models and strategies aimed at Tribes that are just beginning to control their financial needs. The event is rich with networking opportunities for Tribal leaders and finance professionals, with Tribal representatives accounting for nearly two-thirds of the overall attendance.
Our goal in producing this conference is to help the leaders of Indian Country in their efforts to ensure present and future prosperity for their people. As Indian Country continues to grow and strengthen, so does the need for information, resources and contacts to expand Tribal influence throughout both Indian Country and the world.
