NTLA Board of Directors

A devoted group of tribal land professionals



NTLA was started by a devoted group of tribal land professionals from across Indian County who came together after the 1st Tribal Land Staff National Conference in 2011. Today, the organization is led by a dedicated board of directors who play various tribal land-related roles in Indian Country. NTLA board members serve staggered terms of one, two or three years. To learn more about joining the board please email Nichlas Emmons (nemmons@iltf.org) and express your interest.

“It is so good to know that we are all on the same path of taking ownership of our lands...”
