45th Annual Meeting of Shareholders
Nome, Alaska | Saturday, June 1, 2019
Sitnasuak Native Corporation (SNC) is glad to announce the Board of Directors have set the 45th Annual Meeting of Shareholders in Nome, Alaska on Saturday, June 1, 2019, at the Nome Elementary School.
Doors will open at 8 A.M. Alaska Daylight Time (AKDT) with breakfast available. The Nome Beltz High School Dance Group will share song and dance at 9 A.M. The meeting will begin at 10 A.M. with lunch available during the day.
The meeting is an opportunity for Shareholders to gather together, hear reports, celebrate our Corporation’s successes, share questions or comments, and vote on four Board of Directors.
Sitnasuak invites all Shareholders to participate in the annual meeting.
“We have great updates to share and look forward to reporting on the strides we have made towards our strategic plan and goals,” said Sitnasuak President and CEO Bobbi Quintavell. “We encourage every Shareholder to make their voice heard by voting. This is the time to vote in our Corporation’s future by submitting your proxy. Working together we can be united for growth.”
Shareholders are encouraged to vote by proxy – which promotes early voting, supports those who cannot attend the meeting in-person, and allows eligibility for proxy prizes. All proxies must be received on or before 5:00 P.M. AKDT, May 29, 2019. It is your vote and our future.
Shareholders can now vote online at sncvote.org (the Shareholder ID and online PIN are located on the proxy card mailed to each Shareholder). Shareholders may also return hard copies of proxies to the Inspector of Elections (a business reply envelope was provided in the proxy packet mailed to each Shareholder), or hand deliver to the election deposit boxes located at the SNC offices in Nome or Anchorage.
Shareholders may also vote in-person by ballot the day of the annual meeting on June 1, 2019 – registration will open at 8 A.M. AKDT and ballots must be requested by 11 A.M. AKDT.
To help ensure a quorum, the Board of Directors has approved prizes for proxies, early bird proxies and e-voting.
To be eligible for “early bird prizes”, valid proxies must be received on or before 5:00 P.M. AKDT on May 17, 2019.
To be eligible for “proxy prizes” including 50,000 Alaska Airline miles and cash prizes, valid proxies must be received on or before 5:00 P.M. AKDT on May 29, 2019.
To encourage online voting – which is quick and ensures proxies are received by the deadlines – there are additional prizes for those Shareholders that submit proxies by e-voting at sncvote.org.
For the proxy, early bird and e-voting prizes, Shareholders not need be present at the annual meeting to win.
To encourage in-person participation the day of the meeting, Shareholders in attendance and present at the annual meeting are also eligible for door prizes.
