Tribal leaders will gather in Washington DC on December 4 and 5 to attend two high-level events–the 2012 White House Tribal Nations Conference and the National Indian Gaming Association's Tribal Leaders Winter Legislative Summit.

The National Indian Gaming Association will be holding their Tribal Leaders Winter Legislative Summit on December 4 at the Dirksen Senate Building. The agenda will include a federal election update: the impact on Indian Country; internet gaming legislation; IRS tax policies; Carcieri fix legislation; and NIGC's Class II regulation changes.

In addition, the White House recently announced December 5 as the date of the 2012 White House Tribal Nations Conference. The conference will provide leaders from the 566 federally recognized tribes the opportunity to interact directly with the President and representatives from the highest levels of his Administration. The conference will be held at the Department of the Interior, with the opening session in the Sidney R. Yates Auditorium and breakout sessions in ancillary meeting rooms.
