National Congress of American Indians set to announce new chief executive
April 14, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C - The National Congress of American Indians is expected to announce a new chief executive officer as soon as this week.
Fawn Sharp, the president of the NCAI, recently told a group of Indian women leaders that a candidate was in the process of being hired. She did not name an individual but said to expect news soon from the nation's largest inter-tribal advocacy organization.
NCAI's press team did not respond to a request for comment about the timing of the announcement. The organization has been without a top executive for almost five months, following the surprise departure of Kevin Allis last November.
