February 2020

Thank you for your interest in supporting the Minnesota American Indian Chamber of Commerce.  Please consider joining MAICC as we launch our 2020 Membership drive.

2019 was awesome as we successfully launched the Purchasing Power Initiative!  We were excited when the Red Lake Nation signed the first agreement.   We have since added Bois Forte Band, Lower Sioux Community and Fond du Lac Band.  Pi na gi gi for your participation and believing in the vision.

We have teamed up with Red Rock Innovations to provide a free tool for Minnesota Tribes to unite in their PURCHASING and realize their POWER managing their spend for all of their individual and respective enterprises (Governments, Casinos, Clinics, Schools, etc.).  This is also a significant achievement for our members as ALL American Indian Businesses, Artisans and Tribally owned businesses can register once and have access to RFPs from multiple tribes for $0.00 ($30 charge for background screening).  Access is the first step for achieving new opportunities.  Remember our ultimate goal is to credibly identify the spend of Tribal and American Indian owned businesses, governments and organizations so we may create successful economic development enterprises while maintaining each Tribe’s Sovereignty of information.

The MAICC has completed a Strategic Planning Process and has identified the following priorities: 

Strategic Priority 1:        Define the MN American Indian Chamber and How We Can Best Serve our Members and the Tribal and Native Owned Business Community

Strategic Priority 2:        Create Economic Development Opportunities on and off the Reservation for Tribal and Native Owned Businesses

Strategic Priority 3:        Ensure Longevity of the Minnesota American Indian Chamber of Commerce with Financial Stability

Strategic Priority 4:        Enhance MAICC’s Presence in the Community

Join us for our Annual Dinner, December 4, 2020 at Mystic Lake.  Annual Golf Tournament dates will be announced soon.  In addition, we are offering fun networking opportunities and referral services. 

The Minnesota American Indian Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit 501(c)3 Corporation. Membership is open to both American Indian and non-American Indian businesses and individuals.  The MAICC works to achieve entrepreneurial parity for American Indian businesses, non-profits, professionals, and Tribal communities by developing comprehensive asset-centered strategies centered on innovative ideas, alliances and partnerships that embrace technology, entrepreneurship and economic development.
