About NAICJA's Regions

The two-pronged goal of NAICJA’s regions is to 1) optimize communication between NAICJA and its members, and 2) encourage interaction and networking between tribal judges and other justice personnel within the regions and across regions.

NAICJA also values having a Board of Directors, Steering Committee, and Membership that represent a broad range of tribal justice systems across Indian Country to ensure that NAICJA is listening to its constituency and achieving its mission of strengthening and enhancing tribal justice systems. NAICJA‘s membership elects a Board of Directors of 20 active NAICJA members who represent and preside in each of NAICJA’s ten designated regions (two members from each region sit on the Board). NAICJA’s membership also elects a Steering Committee which consists of members who assist the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity. Each Board Member is supported by one Steering Committee Member who hails from the Board Member’s region. Steering Committee Members do not have the right to vote in Board meetings unless a Board Member from their region is absent.
