Tribes and the Exchange Network
Whether you're new to the Exchange Network (EN), or a long time participant with years of experience behind you, we invite you to join the EN Tribal Mentors Network. Through mentorships, those with more experience assist those with developing skills, thereby promoting collaboration and information sharing. Mentorship efforts aim to build tribal capacity and support networks to foster long-term sustainability of EN projects. The Institute for Tribal Environmental Professionals (ITEP) and the EN Tribal Governance Group (TGG) work closely with other EN stakeholders to identify appropriate mentor(s) on a case-by-case basis. For more information, or to request assistance/mentorship for your EN project, CLICK HERE.
It goes by many names - the Exchange Network, the EN, the NEIEN - but fundamentally, this partnership effort between States, Territories, Tribes and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, was developed to facilitate information sharing for a cleaner environment.
The TGG is committed to facilitating a positive and collaborative experience for tribes participating in the Exchange Network. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or ideas on how to foster tribal collaboration on EN projects!
This website serves as a platform for new and existing tribal Exchange Network (EN) users, as well as those interested in EN activities, to connect with one another and access relevant information and resources. The site includes basic information on the EN and the Tribal Governance Group, links to EN announcements, and tools and resources for website visitors. In addition, this website houses the Tribal Mentors Program - a networking tool designed to offer peer-to-peer mentoring to tribes participating in the Exchange Network.
