The Board of Directors operates three Standing Committees

The Executive & Finance Committee

This committee is chaired by the President of the Association and is responsible to oversee personnel, legal and operational matters under the guidance of the Board of Directors. The committee is responsible to guide fiscal excellence, personnel policy, finance policy and Board member policy for development and implementation. The committee meets every 8 weeks to review unaudited financial statements with the Executive Director and members of the Finance Team.

The Program Planning & Policy Committee

This committee is chaired by the Vice-President of the Association and is responsible for the development and review of program and service policy. The committee invites representation from both First Nations community practitioners and Urban Aboriginal practitioners to aid in analyzing policy. The committee normally hosts one two-day meeting per year to examine and make recommendations to the Board of Directors for potential policy revision.

The Urban Aboriginal Working Group

This committee is chaired by the Executive Director of the Association and is responsible for the administration, implementation and evaluation of urban funds. Members of the UAWG are from Urban Aboriginal organizations operating within the city of Prince George. the UAWG prepares a proposal call twice yearly to all Aboriginal organizations and implements a process for assessment and approval. The UAWG meets 6 to 8 times per year to develop a strategic plan, conduct proposal reviews, update on expenditures and results and to examine best practices and lessons learned. The members also attend the Leadership Forums hosted by PGNAETA.
