Board of Directors

The NAHF is governed by a five-member Board of Directors: two members appointed by the NHBP Tribal Council; two members appointed by the governor of Michigan; and the Director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights or their designee. Calhoun County’s administration currently provides financial and communication support services to the NAHF Board of Directors through an intergovernmental agreement. Meetings of the NAHF Board of Directors are open to the public.
