This series consists of records relating to the governance of the Metis Association and Metis Nation, including Board of Directors meeting packages and minutes, Executive Committee meeting minutes, Management Committee meeting minutes, and Annual General Assembly meeting packages and minutes. Associated material like agendas, motions and resolutions, reports, correspondence, delegate lists, financial statements, Constitution and Bylaws and proposed amendments, memoranda of understanding and agreements, discussion papers, affiliation and membership applications, job descriptions, press releases, Administrative Policy Manual, and election rules are also occasionally included. Meeting minutes are usually summaries, but sometimes verbatim.
The records were originally arranged in three sets of records: Minutes, Annual General Meeting packages, and Board packages. These sets have been maintained within the overall Governance series, with some related files inserted by the Archivist from the boxes of miscellaneous records.
