Office on Violence Against Women Annual Tribal Consultation The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) has rescheduled its annual Tribal Consultation (Consultation) to Wednesday December 10, 2008 at the Palm Springs Convention Center in Palm Springs, CA. A block of rooms at a special conference rate has been reserved at the Palm Springs Agua Caliente Spa Resort. If your tribe currently receives grant funding from OVW, you may use your travel funding to pay for the cost of your travel to the Consultation. You may also use the funding to pay for the travel costs of up to two additional representatives from your tribe. Regrettably, OVW does not have funding to help defray the cost of attending the Consultation for tribal governments who do not currently receive OVW grant funding. Non-OVW grantees are welcome to attend the Consultation at their own expense. The enclosed R.S.V.P. form contains more details about room reservation information. Each individual who will attend the Consultation on behalf of your tribe is required to complete and submit an R.S.V.P. form to the Southwest Center for Law and Policy. The form may be submitted either by fax at (520) 326-8070, or online at www.ovwtribalconsultation.com.

Indian Country Sex Offender Registration and Notification (Pre-Conference Institute at the Wyndham Hotel) - Before passage of the Adam Walsh Act, federal law provided national standards for state sex offender registration programs. However, it had no similar provisions concerning sex offenders convicted in tribal courts or those who enter tribal jurisdictions following a conviction elsewhere. It was difficult for tribal authorities to receive notification of sex offenders entering their jurisdictions, to track those offenders, or to make information about those offenders available to community members. This session will provide substantive information on implementation of the Federal Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act in Indian Country as it pertains to the 197 non-PL 280 tribes that elected to function as sex offender registration jurisdictions under the federal law.

NEW: If you want to register for the Indian Country Sex Offender Registration & Notification Pre-Conference Institute only and will not be able to participate in the Indian Nations Conference itself, Click Here to Register.
