All of our committees are run by volunteers who have a deep commitment to the Chinook Nation. The purpose of committees is to assist the tribal council in the running of the tribe. If you are interested in joining a committee contact the committee chair and make arrangements to attend a meeting.

The Process for Committee Appointments are as follows:

  1. The applicant will complete the form Application for Committee Appointment

  3. The council will require a three committee meeting probationary period or will deny the request/appointment
  4. After the completion of the probationary period, the committee chairperson may request Tribal Council approval or denial of full committee membership
  5. Committee members may be removed for missing three (3) consecutive and unexcused meetings or not working in the best interest of the committee
