The Special Trustee Advisory Board will be coming back to life after years of inaction.

Vince Logan, the new leader of the Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians, is seeking nominations for the board. Nine members will be chosen: five to represent tribes and individuals with trust accounts, two with experience in trust fund and financial management, one with experience in fiduciary investment management and one from academia.

The nominations are due December 29, according to a notice published in the Federal Register. "Board members receive no compensation and serve a term of two years," it states.

Logan, a member of the Osage Nation, oversees trust management and trust reform at the Interior Department. He was confirmed to the post in June after a five-year vacancy under the Obama administration.
