National Center celebrates American Indian business successes

By Gale Courey ToensingThe premier Indian business organization is the oldest nonprofit organization in the country dedicated to developing American Indian economic self-sufficiency through business ownership. NCAIED will celebrate Indian country’s business successes at its 34th Annual Indian Progress in Business, INPRO, event held Sept. 16-18 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Tulsa.

INPRO is a gathering of Fortune 500 businesses, tribal leaders, American Indian business owners and the decision makers of Indian business. The three-day event includes a classic golf tournament, speakers, conference workshops, an artisans’ marketplace, a business fair and networking market, and a banquet to recognize a lifelong outstanding tribal leader. A first this year is the Native American 40 Under 40 Business Reception to showcase 40 existing and emerging American Indian leaders under 40 years old, who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in their business, communities or personal areas that further progress throughout Indian country.
