Fond du Lac Band Chairwoman Takes White House Job
Karen Diver, the Chairwoman of the Fond du Lac Band, is stepping down from her position to take a new job at the White House.
In a letter to Fond du Lac Band members, Diver says she has accepted the role of Special Assistant to the President for Native American Affairs.
Her last day with the band will be on November 13.
Diver says Vice-Chairman Wally Dupuis will most likely take over the reigns as Chair of the Reservation Business Committee.
Diver first began her work with the Fond du Lac Band in 2003 as Director of Special projects and was elected Chairwoman in 2007.
She says she is forever grateful for the opportunity and faith the band has given her to serve as Chairwoman.
In the letter to band members, Diver said she is excited by the opportunity to have a wider impact in Indian County under President Obama’s Administration, which has shown unprecedented support for Indian County.
In 2013, Diver was appointed by the President to serve on the Climate Change Task Force.
