Education / Seminars

Continuing professional education is the key to the development of qualified employees within the Tribal government and casino. Without continuing education, key staff may be uninformed of current trends and issues within both government and gaming, specifically as it relates to changes in technology, new accounting pronouncements, and changes in federal and state compliance requirements.

BlueBird provides national and customized education/seminars for Tribes and Tribal Enterprises with a special emphasis on Tribal Gaming. In addition to the 8-10 national training sessions conducted annually on a regional basis, the firm can tailor any program specifically to your location and save you considerable out-of-pocket costs. Each of our educational programs is delivered by a seasoned BlueBird professional with over 10+ years of direct experience in the industry (See Our Firm – Partners).

Available Topics

The list below is representative of our current seminar topics. Each program can be combined with others to give you the specific topics and timeframe you desire as an alternative to simply selecting a pre-determined two day national program designed for a more diverse audience. If you don’t see a topic of interest, call us to discuss and we will develop something completely new for you.
