Q: Who is the ideal candidate to attend the TCRC?
A: It may not be an individual, but rather a team that makes the ideal candidate. The camp planning committee is looking for teams of three individuals from their respective Tribal Nations. Ideally the various team members would hit all three of the following descriptors:
- Tribal environmental professional: Someone who might be spearheading the efforts in producing a climate adaptation plan, either now or in the future.
- Tribal leader: Could be a Council member, a community leader, or culture/traditional knowledge keeper.
- Next Generation Tribal Environmental Professional: Someone who has just started in natural resources and shows promise in holding a key role with the department in the future.
