Meet the Tribe - Angela George, Procurement Specialist

(28 years and 10 months)


Angela George is nearing her thirty-year mark of employment at the SRMT.

The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe is proud to highlight the long-term service of Angela George and share all the exceptional work she is doing on behalf of the Akwesasne community.

Angela George has worked for the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe for nearly three decades and currently works as a Procurement Specialist for the Finance and Accounting Department. She is just one person on a growing list of tribal employees who have devoted the majority of their professional careers to working for their fellow community members.

In 1989, Angela was hired by the Tribe as an Accounts Receivable Clerk within the Accounting Department; where she processed waterline billings, accepted payments and disbursed receipts. As Angela recalls back in those days, the entire Accounting Department had a small staff and was located in the Tribal Clerk's Office. She also remembers that payroll at that time was processed by hand and checks were manually distributed to all tribal employees-no direct deposits.

A few years later in 1996, Angela made the move to the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe's Health Services billing department and processed insurance billing. Then in 2010, she returned to the Accounting Department, but this time as an Accounts Payable Clerk. Soon after her transition, the Accounting Department split into two programs and Angela branched off to the procurement side of the organization, where she has remained ever since.

Looking back on her lengthy career with the Tribe, Angela reflected that one of her greatest achievements has been approaching her 30-year mark of employment with the Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe. She shared that what helped her accomplish this milestone is the pride she feels and the enjoyment she receives when she comes to work every day.

"I enjoy coming into work every day and providing all the necessities Procurement offers to our employees," remarked Angela.

When asked about her most memorable moment, Angela was quick to share her cherished memories of working alongside former Director of Procurement Dan Bero, who has since passed on. Like most tribal employees who knew Dan, she recounted all the laughter they had shared together. People like Dan continue to make the Tribe an enjoyable place to work.

Angela shared, "My favorite part of my job is that I get to interact with the majority of the tribal employees on a daily or weekly basis. Through our interactions with all the different tribal programs, I get to know our employees - it is a privilege getting to put a face to a name."

Niawenko:wa Angela for your many years of service! We are so proud to have you as part of our work family and truly appreciate your dedication.
