AMERIND is a member-owned organization of Tribes and Indian Housing Authorities. Geographically, AMERIND is represented by nine regions. Each region elects a representative to serve on the board of directors. Regional representation on the board of directors allows for an equal and diverse voice among the Tribes represented. Through their regional representative, member-owners have direct access to the corporation’s policymakers and management team.
The members-owners nominate and elect a chairman of the board of directors every three years. Phil Bush was elected to serve as chairman in May 2022 at the AMERIND|NAIHC Annual Convention and Tradeshow.
The AMERIND board of directors works diligently to provide member-owners affordable and sustainable insurance for Native communities and businesses.
