Board of Directors
The Samish Tribal Council appoints the Directors of the Samcor Board for a 3-year term, on a staggered basis. The Board consists of five Directors and includes Samcor’s Corporate Executive Officer (CEO), who also serves as the President of the Board. No more than two Samish Tribal Council members may serve at one time on the Samcor Board of Directors and no person currently on the Tribal Council may serve as the President. The Samcor Board of Directors is responsible for the operation of Samcor for the benefit of the Samish Indian Nation and its enrolled members.
