NATOA has developed several committees of members to meet the needs of the entire membership. The Committees that are currently operating and/or forming are:

Advisory Committee – The Advisory Committee is appointed by the Board of Directors for a three-year term. The Advisory Committee’s mandate is to ensure the Board has access to high quality technical expertise in all matters that affect Indigenous Trusts and Investment portfolios, as well as the management of the Association. It acts as a resource to the Board in providing expertise and information from within each Committee member’s own area of specialization. It establishes and   maintains a process for communication and reporting to ensure effective and appropriate Research Library content on behalf of the Board. Currently, there are ten members on the Advisory Committee. Learn more

Education Committee – The Education Committee is chaired by Mark Sevestre and is responsible for the Accreditation Program, presentations and professional development. NATOA is currently looking for volunteers to assist us in educating our members and Indigenous Communities. Learn more.

Responsible Investment Committee – The Responsible Investment Committee is responsible for formulating the direction NATOA will take in providing leading information to the membership in the area of Responsible Investment which includes Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Ethical, Sustainable and Governance (ESG), The United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report (TRC) and any other relevant areas to this field.
