Discuss Tribally-Chartered Banks & Energy Sovereignty at NAFOA's 2017 Fall Finance & Tribal Economies Conference

August 17, 2017

Register Today for NAFOA's Fall Finance & 
Tribal Economies Conference
The agenda for NAFOA's 2017 Fall Finance & Tribal Economies Conference features two full days of breakout sessions, and two general sessions focused solely on discussing important issues facing Indian Country.    
Featured Sessions:
Creating Sovereign Financial Systems - Tribally-Chartered Banks       
Access to capital and credit markets in Indian Country continues to be a major impediment to economic and community development. Tribal governments have the ability to charter banks and other financial institutions, but is it worth the effort to begin and capitalize a tribal bank? This session will present research on the legal and financial considerations of a tribal government chartered bank and compare the various charters and regulatory schemes. 
Energy Sovereignty: Regulating for a Sustainable Energy Future
Tribal governments, as sovereign nations, have the power to regulate energy on their lands. Decisions and policies regarding energy can strongly influence utility investments, operations, and rates at the government, enterprise development, and citizen/consumer level. This session will review the creation of regulations and what tribes should consider in developing agreements, 
monitoring markets, and enforcing regulations - especially when violations occur.
