The Sitnasuak Native Corporation 44th annual meeting of shareholders has been set for 10:00 am on Saturday, June 3, 2017, in Anchorage, Alaska at The Center located at 4855 Arctic Boulevard. The annual meeting is an opportunity for Shareholders to gather and celebrate together, hear Corporation updates and reports, share comments or questions, and vote for open seats on the board of directors. According to CEO Richard Strutz, “Anchorage was selected by the Board for the location of the annual meeting with the growing number of Shareholders residing in the Southcentral Alaska area. We are looking forward to the gathering and sharing our results and successes during 2016.”
Sitnasuak invites all Shareholders to participate in the annual meeting – options to be involved include in-person attendance, proxy, or webcast. Shareholders are encouraged to vote by proxy – which supports early voting as well as those who cannot attend the meeting in-person.

Only those proxies that are received at the Office of the Election Judge or the Election Judge deposit boxes located at the Sitnasuak Native Corporation offices in Nome or Anchorage on or before 5:00 pm on May 31, 2017 will be voted.
To encourage voting and help ensure a quorum, the Corporation has approved proxy and early bird proxy prizes.
