The following summarizes the appointment procedure and some of the factors that will be considered:

  • Please submit your EOI by 4:00 pm on August 15, 2017. Only those who submit an EOI will be considered.
  • The shareholders make the final decision on TNDC Board appointments.
  • All TNDC Board members are of Tahltan ancestry.
  • TNDC Board members generally do not include individuals who are elected or appointed to a Tahltan political body.
  • Directors serve a two-year term and may be reappointed for additional terms at the discretion of the Shareholders.
  • The TNDC Board requires a specific skills mix, which includes professional level corporate law, financial management, telecommunications, project management (heavy construction, light industry, residential), industrial health & safety, forestry, reclamation & environment, road construction & maintenance. Other skills and experience will be considered.

I like that TNDC maintains an active approach of hiring locally and offers training within that position. Employees are highly encouraged and supported to advance professionally, which ripples into advancing personally as well.

  • We worked with TNDC on the Galore Creek mining project and the Northwest Transmission Line, providing heavy lift helicopter services. It made good business sense to get involved with the Nation, so we formed Tahltan Helifor Joint Venture in 2011. After meeting Bill Adsit, I knew we had made the right decision. We have had only positive experiences and look forward to continued collaboration.
