The political direction and management of Teslin Tlingit Council (TTC) comes from the Elders Council, General Council and Executive Council. The Executive Services Department provides support to these Councils, from research and political advising to meeting logistics and communications.
The Executive Council meets bi-monthly, the General Council typically four times a year and the Elders Council every second month. Each of the Councils work with an agenda that is reflective of political issues relevant to the day. Following political meetings, Executive Services staff are responsible for carrying out action items, directing information to other Departments, and ensuring that decisions are followed through. Executive Services staff create agendas, conduct research when required, draft briefing notes and research papers, and take minutes to ensure the accurate recording of any decisions, directions or resolutions.
TTC enjoys productive relationships with First Nation Governments, the Yukon Government, BC government, the Village of Teslin and the Government of Canada. TTC works collaboratively on a wide range of issues. TTC also works closely with the Council of Yukon First Nations (CYFN), represented by the Chief Executive Officer and other Executive Council members at CYFN’s Leadership meetings. The Executive Services Department is committed to providing quality assistance to Executive members so that they are prepared for these meetings.
