The Future of Trust Administration

October 03, 2014 | 7.5 CLE Credits pending

The Symposium will facilitate multi-party dialogue regarding alternative futures for trust administration with the goal of developing actionable recommendations as well as providing the basis for new scholarship to support the recommendations.

Overview

8:30 a.m.-5:45 p.m.

Co-sponsored by The Center for Indian Law and Policy, Seattle University School of Law and The Intertribal Timber Council

We are witnessing a convergence of several factors that could substantially alter the course of future trust administration. Tribal leaders and resource managers are gaining recognition, respect, access to capital, and political clout. The Secretarial Commission on Trust Administration and Reform issued its report and recommendations in December, 2013. The fiscal challenges confronting the federal government have already dramatically altered workforces and budgets for domestic discretionary programs, which includes the programs charged with carrying out the trust responsibility. External forces beyond the boundaries of Indian Country continue to adversely affect the environment and threaten the ability of tribes to access and utilize resources that are vital to sustaining their cultures and economies. The opportunity to significantly improve the benefits that tribal communities can gain from sound management of their natural resource heritage is fleeting. The time is ripe for creative, thoughtful exploration of alternative futures for trust administration and resource stewardship.

The Symposium will facilitate multi-party dialogue regarding alternative futures for trust administration with the goal of developing actionable recommendations as well as providing the basis for new scholarship to support the recommendations.
