Sequoyah Simermeyer was appointed by the President to a three-year term after the United States Senate unanimously confirmed his nomination in November 2019. As chairman, he is responsible for the federal regulatory agency’s daily operations including its eight regional offices as well as its national and local training and technical assistance efforts. He has taken some bold steps as chairman and kicked off some impressive programs designed to benefit Native Americans and operators alike. He spoke with GGB Managing Editor Jess Marquez at the IGA trade show in San Diego in March.
This week we sit down with Chairman E. Sequoyah Simermeyer, the chairman of the NICG on his final year in that position to talk about his achievements.
