The daylong consultation, to be held at the Chief Leschi School in Puyallup, Washington, is an outgrowth of President Obama's Nov. 5, 2009 Presidential Memorandum and Executive Order, which directs agencies to develop a plan of action for providing regular and meaningful consultation and strengthening of government-to-government relationships with Indian tribes.
