TNDC Board of Directors – Invitation for Expressions of Interest Submission Deadline Extended Again

Tahltan Nation Development Corporation (TNDC) is reissuing its call for invitations for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from Tahltan members who wish to be considered for appointment to the TNDC Board of Directors. Due to the wildfire situation that has been occurring within Tahltan Territory, the submission deadline has been further extended, and will now close on Friday, September 28, 2018.

The TNDC Board is comprised of nine (9) directors which includes the Chair, Vice-chair and seven (7) Board Members. In 2018, the terms of the Chair and five (5) Board members will expire. While these individuals may seek a further term on the Board, the Shareholders of TNDC will also consider applications to appoint new or returning Board members. 

The Shareholders have asked TNDC to coordinate the gathering of Expressions of Interest for the TNDC Board. The Shareholders intend to hold a Shareholders Meeting to appoint the Board positions which will become vacant. 

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

  • Please submit your EOI by 4:00 pm on Friday, September 28, 2018. 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, industry, infrastructure, residential), mining & exploration, industrial health & safety, forestry, reclamation & environment, road construction & maintenance. Other skills and experience will be considered.

  • TNDC is a great place to work. The atmosphere in the office is friendly, open, and honest, and there is always humour and laughter. 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.

  • Sodexo Canada has been a partner with TNDC since 2002, providing complete camp management through Spatsizi Remote Services. During this time we have worked on many projects, and employed many Tahltan members. It’s been very positive, and the business relationships have formed long lasting personal and business friendships.

  • Ledcor recognized the benefits offered through the Tahltan’s local expertise and experience, and welcomed the opportunity to involve community members in projects. We established Tahltan-Ledcor Joint Venture back in 1991 when we managed construction on the Eskay Creek mine. We value the partnership with TNDC and look forward to the opportunities ahead within Tahltan traditional territory.
