CTER Constitution and Bylaws

These documents, ratified December 9th, 2014, were developed over the last 2 years and are the first revisions to CTER’s constitution and bylaws since 1984. The board worked very hard to update their foundational documents to reflect their ongoing support to employment rights for native peoples and sovereign Indian nations and organizations in the context of today’s challenges. The constitution and bylaws were passed unanimously and represents a renewed engagement by the board to the mission and goals of CTER and all our stakeholders. Download PDF
