5th Tribal Land Staff National Conference a Success

March 24-26, 2015 ILTF and NTLA (National Tribal Land Association) co-hosted the 5th Tribal Land Staff National Conference in Pala, California. The conference provided workshops, training and networking opportunities for tribal land staff professionals from throughout Indian Country.

As we continue to move the conference around Indian Country, this year we ventured to Pala Casino Spa and Resort in Pala, California where 286 individuals participated, representing 79 tribes. Attendees were offered three full tracks including one track specifically designed  for Continuing Legal Education (CLE); 11 sessions on topics including fee-to-trust, legal description, GIS in the workplace, tribal land title record offices and others; and seven sessions on the Land Buy-Back Program process.

The Tribal Land Staff National Conference, held specifically for this unique group of professionals, is the only national conference of its kind. As with past years, this year’s conference provided plenty of opportunities for tribal land staff to network with each other and to learn how land offices from other Indian nations and in other regions are dealing with similar issues.
