As an active Associate Member with several Indian Gaming Associations, I can confidently say that no other organization provides as much opportunity to have quality face time with tribal leaders like CNIGA. This organization provides more than just an annual conference and tradeshow. I find a lot of personal and professional value in receiving weekly political updates and the opportunity to build relationships at the bi-monthly membership meetings. If your organization values Tribal Sovereignty, is involved in Indian Gaming and hospitality, or interacts frequently with tribal leaders, active participation with CNIGA is a great investment.

California Clean Air Project (CCAP)
Being an associate member of CNIGA has provided us so many unique opportunities and has enabled us to have conversations and build relationships with California tribal leaders. Over the past seven years we have been able to build respectful and trusted relationships with California tribes by providing information and education on our work. CNIGA affords us several avenues in which to communicate with its membership, including presentations and seminars at meetings and events pertaining to the dangers of secondhand smoke exposure. Membership has also provided us with the much needed education and insight into the many intricate nuances of sovereign nations in California and beyond. We are thankful to CNIGA for not only our associate membership, but also embracing our work on an important health issue.
