Sub Committees

Our Commission consists of three sub committees:

  1. Planning and Prioritization (P&P) – works to establish a baseline on what activities may be pursued , determine the state’s responsibility and coordinate with tribes to clarify what current programs/plans exist to support a state role.  The P&P subcommittee makes recommendations for the full Commission to consider and provides a strategic planning role.  Members include: Nathan Pryor, Dave Castillo and Billie Spurlin.

  2. Indian Nations and Tribes Legislative Day (INTLD) – “Tribal Legislative Day” is an annual event and the most visible activity of the Commission.  INTLD includes a joint protocol session, catered luncheon and post event workshop.  The INTLD subcommittee develops a work plan to solicit private donations to cover related expenses, coordinate efforts with the Inter Tribal Council and AZ Indian Gaming Association to finalize an agenda, and other duties necessary to support a large scale event.  Members include: Nathan Pryor, Leah Hubbard and Lucinda Hughes Juan.

  3. AZ Indian Town Hall (AITH) – hosts a plenary  session to enable the state and tribes to address issues on a regular and proactive basis with the intent to create a process that promotes public consideration of issues, builds consensus and supports the implementation of resulting recommendations.  This committee convenes as needed.  Members include: Buddy Rocha, Derreck Wheeler, and Lucinda Hughes Juan
