Sitnasuak Native Corporation recently held its Annual Shareholder Reception in conjunction with the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) Convention. Sitnasuak staff and Board of Directors welcomed shareholders, descendants, family and friends to an informational session, Oct. 23 at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage.
Reverend Caleb Dotomain provided a beautiful and heartfelt invocation.
To add to the smiles and laughter that filled the room, the Kingikmiut dancers, who have ancestral ties to the village of Wales, Alaska shared songs and dances – lifting all of our spirits.
Chairman Bobby Evans briefed shareholders about the board’s work and CEO David Hoffman gave a business update. Rich Dyson, VP of Human Resources, answered questions about current job openings. Talent bank forms were available for shareholders to complete on the spot.
As Sitnasuak continues to grow and deliver, shareholders and shareholder descendants are encouraged to keep an up to date Talent Bank form on file with Sitnasuak. The form is available on the website by clicking here.
President Chuck Fagerstrom gave a thorough presentation on shareholder services. “We have great employees who have a great working relationship with our board. I couldn’t ask to be part of a better corporation,” he said.
Land Manager Austin Ahmasuk also spoke, as did Foundation Coordinator Chrystie Salesky. She reported on both the Shareholder Department and the Sitnasuak Foundation.
Lucky shareholders in attendance received some great prizes, such as Sitnasuak jackets, gift cards, cash prizes, a flat screen TV, and an iPad. Congratulations to those shareholders who won!
This was one of the most exciting shareholder receptions because of the number of attendees. Approximately 300 individuals attended the reception – the largest in Sitnasuak history! Thank you all for making the event a success!
