Sitnasuak Native Corporation (SNC) is seeking interested Shareholders in serving as advisory committee members for the SNC Land and Elders Committees. Letters of interest are due by 4:00 P.M AKDT on or before November 1, 2019.
As background, the advisory committee members give advice and support with the Corporation and Committees. The member term is for one-year and the role provides a way to involve and engage Shareholders. The Board of Directors has recently updated the advisory committee member process and encourages interested Shareholders to submit letters of interest for consideration.
For the Land Committee, advisory committee members work with Board members on planning uses of Sitnasuak land, review land use and special use permit applications, and balance the traditional, subsistence, social and economic development uses of Corporation lands.
For the Elders Committee, advisory committee members work with Board members to represent Elder Shareholders, select Elder of the Year, help with the Elders calendar and other cultural materials.
Committee meeting schedules vary but often meet quarterly. Individuals must be a Sitnasuak Shareholder to apply. Letter of interest should include a brief introduction, overview of qualifications, employment history or background, and key points of consideration for the committee with a resume or any additional information one wishes to include.
