Working with entities that are legally considered sovereign nations, such as Native American tribes, presents both opportunities and specific contract and event management issues to consider. Find out what major legal issues you should consider when you tap into this growing market segment.

Join Meetings Focus and Lisa M. Koop, an attorney for Washington state’s Tulalip Tribe, to discover the many considerations, and advantages, when entering into a contract with a sovereign people, such as Native American tribes. This free one-hour video webinar travels to the Tulalip Resort Casino for the presentation, where we catch up with Linda Botts, the resort’s national sales manager, and take a look around the property with a group of meeting planner FAM participants.

As a result of participating in this session, you will:

  • Understand the differences involved when working with a tribal organization
  • Discover what conflict resolution tools are offered by tribal councils
  • See what advantages, such as with staffing and amenity inclusions, a property operated by a sovereign nation can provide

 Earn CEUs: This webinar is worth 1 clock hour of continuing education toward the initial CMP application and recertification through the Convention Industry Council.
