The Special Trustee for American Indians is seeking nine individuals to serve on the Special Trustee Advisory Board.
“This board is an opportunity for OST to receive meaningful advice and prudent perspectives on trust management reforms at the Department of the Interior,” said Special Trustee, Vincent Logan. “The Reform Act directed the Special Trustee to appoint leaders from academia and finance so that OST can maintain a beneficiary focus and deliver well-informed trust management services to individual Indian and tribal beneficiaries.”
Nominations are due by Dec. 29 and should include a résumé or other documents. Self-nominations will receive equal consideration.
The board’s purpose, as defined in the 1994 American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act, is to provide advice to the Special Trustee on all matters associated with the trust responsibilities overseen by the office.
The board is not subject to the Federal Advisory Committee Act and members will serve two-year terms without compensation. The board, as required by the Reform Act, is composed of:
(1) five members representing trust fund account holders, including both tribal and Individual Indian Money accounts;
(2) two members with practical experience in trust fund and financial management;
(3) one member with practical experience in fiduciary investment management; and,
(4) one member from academia with knowledge of general management of large organizations.
Nominations must be submitted by Dec. 29 to:
Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians, Attn: Lee Frazier
Department of the Interior
