Notice to Alexis Band Members Re: Alexis Constitution – October 6, 2020

Abawashded,

At our recent 2nd Quarter Band Meeting (September 23, 2020,) I reported that my office will be implementing Regular Meetings (Governance & Accountability) for the drafting of our Alexis Constitution Law and subsequent band laws: Election Regulations (Revisions), Education, Child Family Services (CFS), and Health.

These meetings will be scheduled for the Council, Members 60 years and older and our Executive Team. Ms. Chasidy Alexis, Sr Legal & Policy Analyst, is assisting us with the initial drafting. Chasidy has provided a copy of her update to the membership at our recent band meeting. (Copies available online and at the band office front desk.)

Our goal is to have the drafts completed and presented to the membership during our Alexis Treaty Day 144th Year Commemoration, on August 21, 2021.

The Council is available anytime to discuss your concerns. We will continue providing updates and appreciate your continued support. For information on meeting schedules please contact:
