MAYETTA: Benny Potts was sworn in this morning to serve on the Enrollment Review Committee by Vice Chairperson Joyce Guerrero in Tribal Council chambers while members of the Enrollment Committee and Tribal Council looked on.
Potts works for the Road & Bridge Department and has previously served on Tribal Council.
The Enrollment committee consists of five tribal members who meet when necessary to review all enrollment applications to determine eligibility. The applications are reviewed for the completion of required documentation as outlined in the Tribal Constitution http://www.pbpindiantribe.com/our-constitution.aspx. The final determination for membership goes to the Tribal Council for a resolution to recognize that person as a Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation member.
Applications for enrollment are available through the Member Services Department located on the lower level of the Government Center which is also where the Enrollment Committee holds their meetings. Paul Vega is the Membership Coordinator and can be reached at 785.966.3934.
The Committee is also looking for two alternates to serve on the Committee.
