On behalf of Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc (TteS) Chief and Council, we are very excited and honoured to announce that the TteS Community Services department hosted a Special Event, the TteS Membership Code Swearing-In Ceremony. It was a momentous and intimate occasion that brought together those being sworn in for the Membership Committee and the Arbitration Board on November 29, 2023.
Officially, as of November 3, 2020, TteS became a Section 10 Band and adopted its own Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc Membership Code. As a Section 10 Band, we have control of our membership list and have set our own eligibility requirements according to the TteS Membership Code. Upon registration, if an individual is affiliated with a Section 10 band, they must apply directly to the band for membership.
We have now completed the final formal step for all members of the Membership Committee and Arbitration Board who will be reviewing all applications for membership to Tk̓emlúps te Secwépemc. Those awaiting these important next steps will be contacted when the processing of applications begins.
We extend our gratitude to everyone who came to witness this historical day and express appreciation to the amazing staff of TteS who made this event possible.
