The Gathering Business Summit is the largest event hosted by the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Oklahoma each year.  The conference will offer sessions that highlight successful business plans of Native-owned  businesses, how to seek government contracts, obtaining financial assistance for your businesses and business matchmaking sessions. Visit with the directors of preferred Indian-owned programs and TERO from a number of tribes across Oklahoma who champion for Indian-owned businesses.  There are excellent networking opportunities! The AICCO Annual Awards luncheon will take place on Tuesday.  

“Dear AICCO Members and The Gathering 2020 registrants,

Due to the perseverance of the serious health threat, COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the Gathering until 2021. While disappointing, we regard your health and safety with utmost concern.

We look forward to April 25th-April 27th, 2021 when we’ll be putting on the Gathering better than ever at the River Spirit Hotel and Resort! Already registered for 2020? Registrations for this year’s Gathering may be rolled into pre-registration for the Gathering 2021. River Spirit accommodation registration can work similarly.

We encourage you to watch this Gathering page for updates as they develop!

Anowa Chipisala’cho!

Until I See You Again!”

Bailey Walker, AICCO State President.
