Hundreds of representatives across various sectors and industries in Tribal government, business and housing will come together for phenomenal networking and learning opportunities.

We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!” stated Derek Valdo (Pueblo of Acoma), AMERIND Risk CEO.
Meanwhile, the NAIHC will dive into issues impacting Tribal housing programs, including utilizing Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and other federal resources, the reauthorization of the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act, and highlighting successful best practices.
“The NAIHC is excited to bring Tribal housing professionals together in San Diego to network and share their success stories of creating quality, affordable housing opportunities in their Tribal communities,” said Tony Walters, NAIHC Executive Director.
AMERIND and the NAIHC, two Native-strong organizations, work together to promote proactive safety measures to reduce injury, property damage and other risk. We hope you’ll join us in beautiful San Diego for an exciting convention and trade show you won’t want to miss.
