This year's AVT Conference was held March 6-8 at Barona Valley Ranch Resort and Casino in Lakeside, CA. There were 75 participants.
United Tribes Technical College hosts these trainings annually. We provided training about federal and national updates related to higher education, AVT, Workforce Investment Act, 477, and other programs. Many of the participants are from different Tribal nations throughout the U.S.
There was a reception held on the second night that featured entertainment of two comedians, J.R. Redwater (Standing Rock) and Jim Ruel (Ojibwe), and Bobbi Rae Sage (MIN XIII) performed.
Participants selected Seminole Hard Rock Casino as the host of next year's conference, which will be held on March 5-7, 2007.
