The General Council
The General Council, which consists of all Tribal members age 18 and older, elects the governing body of the CTUIR -- the Board of Trustees. The General Council also elects its own officers whose primary responsibilities include running the monthly General Council meetings and moving forward General Council issues.
The General Council meets monthly to hear updates from its Chairman, the Board of Trustees, and various working groups. This is also an opportunity for General Council members to provide input and recommendations to the tribal officials. Special General Council meetings are occasionally held to discuss specific issues. General Council meetings are generally closed to the public and the news media unless invited by the General Council officers.
The current General Council officers took office on Nov. 30, 2011 and will serve through November of 2013, when the next election will be held.
