The Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation Governance Group (SNGRDC Governance Group) is comprised of three governing boards: The Advisory Committee (AC), Board of Directors (BOD), and Board of Trustees (BOT). The three boards were formed to ensure transparency and accountability to the Six Nations Community. The structure of this group is based on community recommendations made during the 5 month community engagement in 2011 entitled Tewawennaro:roks “We Gather Our Voices”.
