Native American leaders to collaborate on new ideas in Milwaukee

The National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development are hosting a Reservation Economic Summit (RES) in Milwaukee starting today until Thursday at the Potawatomi Hotel.

RES is the country's leading Native American business event bringing together tribal leaders, elected officials, top CEOs, established or aspiring Native American business owners, and many more to learn, brainstorm, collaborate, and network in an innovative and motivational atmosphere. In addition to business development seminars and sessions, RES Wisconsin will also feature a Native American business trade show. This is the first regional RES to take place in Milwaukee and the Great Lakes Region, and the Forest County Potawatomi Tribe and the Forest County Potawatomi Foundation are the presenting partners for RES Wisconsin.

Highlights of the conference include an opening session address by Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett today, and a Thursday listening session from staff of the U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee.
