The Council is accepting nominations from Alaska Native Tribes and/or Tribal Consortia for one designated Alaska Native Tribal seat on its Advisory Panel. The Council has received consistent and increased engagement from Alaska Native Tribes and communities in its process and wants to ensure Tribal perspectives are included and represented on its Advisory Panel. The Council’s intent is to consider applicants for this seat with the same term limits, and qualifications as 3-year appointment (prorated for the 1st term).
Details about how to apply for this seat can be found here. Please note that submissions will be viewable to the public on the webpage for submissions. The nominations period for the designated Alaska Native Tribal seat will be open until 5pm on February 3rd, 2023. This deadline differs from other AP nominations that close at 5pm on November 15th, 2022. The Council chose a later deadline for the designated Alaska Native Tribal seat on its Advisory Panel to have adequate time to notice and reach out to interested members of the public, Tribes, and Tribal Consortia, especially after Typhoon Merbok. Please reach out to Kate Haapala, Council Tribal/rural community liaison, if you have any questions or would like further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org; 907-271-2809.
