This year's National Tribal Symposium to Advance Transportation is built entirely around YOU. The focus of the newly renamed National Tribal Symposium (NTS) will continue to address the most relevant and pressing tribal transportation challenges. However, the revised Symposium will foster a multi-modal culture and networking opportunities between tribes and federal officials. Expanding the Symposium to include other Operating Administrations, will give tribes access to both agency unique and universally common themes that cross all modes.

Tribal transportation professionals are responsible for conceiving, planning, designing, initiating, constructing, maintaining and operating transportation infrastructure, and it is essential to receive effective solutions and useful tools for maintenance and modernization needs. The Symposium will open on Tuesday with a plenary session, followed by a program of tracks covering topics relevant to the tribal community.

Please check back for a complete list of tracks and sessions.


Attendees will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with FHWA, the Tribal Technical Program (TTP), and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to discuss challenges, seek guidance, and topics related to their program.
