Our Executive Board members are elected by our 56 member tribes. Member tribes are organized into units. Each unit elects a representative to serve on our Executive Board.

Member tribes also elect one at-large member of the Board, who serves as our chairperson. AVCP’s Traditional Chief and Second Traditional Chief serve the Board and member tribes in an Elder role.

At the time of elections, Executive Board members must be tribal members of an AVCP member tribe and an elected tribal governmental official. All Executive Board members must pass a background check.
