                                         ELECTION OF NEW MEMBERS (POLICY)

     Board members serve staggered terms of four years, and approximately half of the Board members terms of
     office expire every two years as indicated in the charter. The Board members will be elected at the general
     election of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Petitions with 25 signatures from eligible voters of the appropriate
     district will be filed in the Office of the College President twenty-five days prior to the general
     election. If only one petition is filed, then this individual will automatically be elected to the Board of
     Trustees. All candidates for office will be certified by the Board of Trustees and a determination as to the
     winner will be made prior to December 1. The newly elected Board member will take office at the December
     Board meeting. If no petitions are filed for the expired term of office the Tribal Council will select the
     Board member.

     Trustees - August 22, 2002
