NIEA Convention and Trade Show
The National Indian Education Association (NIEA) will host the 47th Annual Convention & Trade Show in Reno, Nevada from October 5-8, 2016. The theme of the 2016 NIEA Convention, “Building Education Nations by Engaging Families, Educators, and Leaders,” brings together Native educators, students, and advocates focused on improving the academic achievement of Native students. NIEA Convention creates a unique opportunity for educators, advocates, and tribal leaders to share successful teaching strategies and seek solutions for challenges faced in school systems. It is the the only national forum in the United States which offers a meaningful space for Native education stakeholders to discuss, network, learn, and guide policy and advocacy. NIEA Convention participants will have the opportunity to choose from more than 100 workshops focusing on advancing educational programs for Native students. The 2016 NIEA Convention will offer a Trade Show, including Native art vendors from across the country, college & career opportunities, education resources, and chances to network.
NIEA will also offer the 3rd Annual College Showcase which welcomes thousands of local students to interact with university exhibitors.
