WASHINGTON, D.C. | Today, during the National Congress of American Indians 77th Annual Convention & Marketplace First General Assembly, Chief Executive Officer Kevin Allis announced his departure from the organization after serving 18 months as CEO.
“Having the opportunity to serve Indian Country in this capacity has been the job of a lifetime. It has been an honor to work alongside the talented staff at NCAI on behalf of tribal nations. I've been here since June, 2019, a year and a half. And my vision here was to get the organization to a place where it was financially strong, internally solid, the infrastructure sound, the work environment comfortable, and the output - Amazing,” said Allis during his remarks.
“We have made it to where we needed to go. And now it's time to pass the torch to a new executive officer that will take what we've built in the last 18 months and take it even further. I'm going to be transitioning out of NCAI over the course of the next couple of months,” said Allis.
“During his tenure as NCAI’s first CEO, Kevin played an integral role in advancing the interests of tribal nations in Washington, D.C. and throughout Indian Country,” said NCAI President Fawn Sharp. “NCAI wishes Kevin well in his future endeavors and thanks him for his service,” continued President Sharp.
