Directors Meeting with the Commissioner 2/14/18

Please save the date for a Meeting with the Commissioner Lekan and Mausami Kothari (OGM) on February 14, 2018 in Washington DC at the NCSEA Policy Forum in the afternoon.  It was suggested at our last Directors meetings to have an extra day added on to the NCSEA Policy Forum.   Monica Adams is currently making arrangements for meeting space.  We will need to provide her with Agenda items that we want to discuss with the Commissioner and OGM.  Monica will send out more information later.

Please let me know if there are any specific agenda items you would like to discuss or if you feel that a conference call would be better.  You can respond to this blog or email me personally at mtran@pgst.nsn.us or 360-297-9668.

  1. I wasn’t planning on attending the Policy Forum but if more support is needed i could attend the forum and also the meeting. I feel it is important that we express the need of support for our Indian children. I also feel it is important that we express we know the concerns, needs and we have the connections to assist our people. Above all our sovereignty is an advantage to our families we serve. We have connections within our community that the state doesn’t have. Nothing negative about the State because our program has good correspondence and cooperation with the state of Idaho but i think it is important that it be known that we can assist our families better.

  2. Ashley Wilson (Osage), Legal Assistant for the Osage Nation Child Support Services will attend the forum in my place. Ms. Wilson is flying in early so she can attend the meeting with Commissioner Lekan.

  3. Monica should be sending something out the next few days. We are hoping that she will be able to access a telephone line so you can also participate by phone.
