1 Building a strong and competent
tribal management team for the
future was the main emphasis of

viduals for five general manager
and two key staff positions. The
positions resulted from the recently
adopted and implemented reor
ganization plan. Smith, Tribal Chief
Executive Officer Secretary Treas
urer, announced his selection Tues
day, April 4 after spending about
two weeks reviewing resumes and
interviewing the 26 applicants. The
new positions will be effective June
"In making my decision of a
management team, I took into
consideration the long-term benef
its that will accrue for the tribal
organization. I leaned to tribal
members who have demonstrated
successful management and supervisory
responsibilities, loyalty, and high
potential," said Smith. Continuing,
Smith added, "I feel that I have
pulled together a strong team and
am looking forward to leading and
working with them."
Sal Sahme was selected to fill the
human services general manager
position. Jody Calica was selected
as general manager of natural
resources. Ed Manion will serve as
general manager of public utilities.
Charles Jackson will be general
manager of business and economic
development. Jeff Sanders will be
chief of police. Garland Brunoe
will be director of human resources
and Larry Calica will be director of
governmental affairs and planning.

The main purpose of the reor
ganization is to streamline tribal
operations and to ensure that the
organization is serving the tribal
membership as it is supposed to.
The exact responsibilities of the
general managers has not yet been
determined. However, by June I,
those responsibilities will be de
fined, with departments and pro
grams being assigned to the appro
priate general managers.

Smith stated, "I feel that the excel
lent quality of the candidates shows
the resource of talent and expe
rience we possess in our organiza
tion. This also made for difficult
choices. The decisions were needed
and I am confident that we can
now move on with the building of
our organization.
"I ask and am expecting your
support of the persons I have
selected..." concluded Smith.
