Local Indian child welfare advisory committee—Membership.

Local Indian child welfare advisory committees must be established within each region. The number and locations of the local committees must be mutually determined by the Indian tribal governments and urban Indian organizations served by that region and the DSHS regional administrator.
(1) The committee must consist of representatives designated by tribal government and urban Indian organizations. The regional administrator must appoint committee members from among those individuals designated by Indian authorities. These members should be familiar with and knowledgeable about the needs of children in general as well as the particular needs of Indian children residing in the service area.
(2) The committee may also include bureau of Indian affairs staff, Indian health service staff, and other community members.
(3) The CA regional administrator must appoint a member of his or her child welfare staff as a liaison member of the committee.
