Tla’amin law requires two general assemblies per year. The 2024 general assemblies have been scheduled as follows: May 2/3 Spring General Assembly – Budget meeting, and November 7/8 Fall General Assembly – Audit meeting.

“With this Assembly we are taking a whole Nation approach so that Citizens can have their questions answered in one place, over two days. This unified approach to engagement is based on our value of one-heart, one-mind, one-Nation. Tla’amin Management Services, Health and all departments of the Nation will be present, and we invite our Citizens to please plan to join us for two days of business, culture, and fun.”
