Event details

The purpose of the 2015 TAC-G National Workshop is to provide the highest quality environment possible for collaboration with individuals and organizations who are dedicated to the organized assistance for American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), Tribes, and Tribal governments in their time of need during emergencies and disasters. The material presented will be some of the most accurate and up to date emergency services information available, delivered by nationally recognized and emerging authorities. The mission will be accomplished in a professional and financially responsible manner in the best interest of all Workshop attendees.

The TAC-G general session will begin on Wednesday, November 4th at 9AM with registration beginning at 8AM and will run through Thursday November 5th at 5PM.   There is no cost to register or attend the workshop however all travel expenses are the responsibility of the attendee.


This year the TAC-G has again partnered with the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) to provide a training track on Emergency Planning for Tribal Cultural Institutions.  It is a workshop track for tribal leaders, emergency managers and tribal cultural stewards.

This track will focus on ways to better protect tribal cultural property – including the invaluable artifacts that embody tribal heritage – from the impact of disasters. The program will be delivered by the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving cultural heritage. Tribal leaders and professionals from both the tribal emergency management field and tribal cultural institutions – from first responders to museum curators to librarians – will work together to identify ways to help each other better protect their cultural items (and the museums and cultural centers in which they are housed) to ensure that they survive for future generations.

This training will be conducted Tuesday, November 3rd and as space is limited, please register as soon as possible at Travel stipends are available to tribal leaders, emergency managers and cultural resource stewards who participate in the workshop. 

The hotel rate is $83 and is valid November 1st to checkout November 6th.  To reserve your room please call 800-760-6700 and used the group name "Tribal Assistance Conference".
