Sept. 16 — ADES Tribal Informational Forums – Register Now

| September 13, 2021



September 16, 2021

1:00 – 2:30 PM MST



 Join the DES Office of Tribal Relations on these dates to learn about DES updates on program, policy, and/or services. Each Division will be in attendance and you will be able to ask questions in individual break-out sessions.  (Both Forums will cover the same topics, we are providing two dates/times to fit your schedules. You are welcome to attend both if needed.) 



To be able to self-select a specific Breakout Room during the Forum YOU MUST HAVE either:

– Zoom Desktop client or the mobile app: version 5.3.0 or higher, or

– Zoom Chrome OS: version 5.0.0 (4241.1207) or higher.

If not, we will have to manually move you in the break-out room which can take time away from your session. To ensure you have the correct version of Zoom, please consult your technology department or manager.


Anyone that requires a reasonable accommodation based on language or disability should contact ADES’s Office of Equal Opportunity at Requests should be made no later than September 7, 2021, to ensure there is ample opportunity to address the accommodation.
