At the February monthly membership meeting, a number of announcements were made by Chief Hayward. While Council Member Charlie White took the minutes in lieu of Secretary Jarrett, who could not be in attendance, a small crowd of members listened attentively. First discussed were the on-going issues related to the Qalipu enrolment process, and more specifically, the recent letters regarding self-identification.
Following this, a number of handouts were provided, including some information regarding IHFN’s involvement with the recently-announced Seven Shores Nation Network initiative. Additionally, information regarding possible staff for IHFN was discussed.
The third and final major topic was the announcement of this year’s elections for the Band Council. Anyone wishing to nominate a member for a council position must do so at the next meeting, which will be held on Thursday, March 21st, 2019. At this meeting, the final dates and voting locations will be announced, likely occuring over two days with one location in Stephenville and another in Stephenville Crossing.
Please share this information with any other members and encourage all who may be interested in running for council to attend the next meeting. Come Out. Be Heard. Take Part.
Update: The above was edited to include the correct date for the next meeting, which is March 21st, not March 28th as originally written.
