The fourth Annual 2019 Navajo Nation Economic Summit “Partnerships to Strengthen Opportunities” is held to strategically develop solutions addressing challenges and maximizing untapped potential that will benefit the Navajo people. The Summit’s goal is to create and support new sustainable business development aligned with the Nation’s cultural values, resulting in training, jobs and stronger Navajo economies.
This year the Navajo Nation emphasizes the fostering of strong innovative partnerships with much interest to create trade relationships with such as Indigenous communities from Canada and Canadian companies.
Navajo leadership encourages all Chapters that prioritize economic and business development to attend not only the Summit but also the business matching activities on day 3. The Navajo Nation also calls on companies that understand and respect its economic power and history to meet Navajo decision makers face-to-face, resulting in productive relationships and new business connections.
Agenda for the Navajo Nation Economic Summit
Monday, April 22 and Tuesday, April 23
The agenda is currently under development. It will be comprised on workshops and presentations dealing with Navajo business and economic development. We will post a link and details as they become available.
The Summit agenda will run on an app called Whova. It will provide package 1 and 2 delegates will all details for the first two days. It will require you create a login and pass word. We will post a link closer to the event date.
Agenda for ABM
ABM is comprised of 17 one-on-one appointments all delegates registered for package 2 and 3 prepare as soon as they sign up.
ABM runs on a business matching platform that also requires a login and password which you create no matter what package you register for. It then links you into a portal and your business matching home page that shows your appointment calendar and all business matching profiles. This sounds more complicated than it is. Once you up and running, it will be easy to manage.
