-Economic Summit Brings Tribal Leaders, Other Stakeholders Together to Promote Economic Development on Reservations-

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As tribes continue working to find new sources of economic development and bring much-needed funding and resources to their reservations, the Native American Financial Services Association (NAFSA) is pleased to announce their platinum-level support at the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED)'s 2014 RES D.C.

The event, held June 24th - 26th, is part of the expansion of the NCAIED's highly successful National Reservation Economic Summit into additional high-powered business events that serve as a catalyst for Tribal economic development throughout the United States.

"RES D.C. allows our members to connect with other tribal leaders, elected officials, CEO's, business owners, and others to advance their enterprises and invest in their tribes," said Barry Brandon, Executive Director of NAFSA. "NAFSA is absolutely supportive of NCAIED and the conference's goal of creating economic opportunities throughout Indian country, and we were proud to contribute resources toward making this event a possibility,"

Gary Davis, President and CEO of the NCAIED added, "We are thrilled to have NAFSA's support for this conference. Their contribution will benefit not only the tribally-owned lending enterprises of NAFSA's members, but all businesses looking to bring economic development and prosperity to Indian country."

One of NAFSA's key missions is to promote economic development opportunities in Indian country by protecting sovereign rights, helping tribes to offer responsible online lending products, and advocating for tribal rights to operate legitimate, legal, law-abiding businesses. This mission dovetails perfectly with the NCAIED's purpose of putting Indian country to work.

RES D.C. is NCAIED's fourth RES Regional event, designed to continue the momentum created at the National RES and bring stakeholders together to learn, brainstorm, collaborate, and network in a motivational atmosphere. Attendees benefit from teaming opportunities, business development sessions, the RES tradeshow, Business Expo, American Indian Artisan Market, RES Procurement, RES Buy Native Matchmaking Expo, Tribal Business Leaders Forum, and more.

Through the protection of consumer rights and sovereign immunity, NAFSA provides vital services to tribally operated lenders serving the under-banked with better short term financial services, furthering economic development opportunities in Indian Country.
