Executive Council - Guidelines

The Executive Council of the Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska (Tlingit & Haida) has adopted these governance guidelines to assist it in observing governing processes that best serve the interests of the tribe and its members. These guidelines are intended to serve as best practices that guide the Executive Council’s conduct of its business, not as a set of legally binding obligations. They should be interpreted in the context of the Tribe's Constitution, Statutes, and other governing legal documents. The Constitution is the only Tribal organic document that may legally limit the authority and power of the Executive Council. (Unless otherwise noted, all references in the guidelines to "directors" or "Executive Council" indicate all members of the Executive Council, including the youth representative.)
