Welcome to Election Connection
Notice is hereby given that the 49th annual meeting of shareholders of Sealaska will be held on Saturday, June 25 at 1pm Alaska Daylight Time. The meeting will be held in Juneau, Alaska at Centennial Hall, 101 Egan Drive, and streamed virtually on MySealaska.
Although we do not know of any other business to be considered at the 2022 annual meeting, if any other business is presented at the annual meeting, your signed proxy card gives authority to Sealaska Proxyholders Barbara Cadiente-Nelson, Morgan Howard and Lisa Lang to vote on such matters according to their best judgment.
Holders of the voting stock of record at 5 p.m. Alaska Time, on the Record Date, April 15, 2022, are entitled to vote at the 2022 annual meeting. On that date, Sealaska had 2,579,186 outstanding shares of stock, and 2,151,783 of those were entitled to vote.
Please submit your proxy as soon as possible to ensure that your shares will be voted. There are voting instructions on pages 4-7 of the proxy statement. You may call the Inspectors of Election and Voting at 907.789.3178 or toll-free 1.800.478.3178 if you have any questions or to confirm your proxy has been received.
Each shareholder who returns a valid proxy before the deadline, whether on line, in the mail, delivery in person or by fax, or by voting in person at the meeting, will receive a one-time payment of $50. If you qualify for the incentive, you can choose to contribute it directly to Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) Culture Projects and Native Language Transcriptions and Translations Fund. Just mark the appropriate box on your proxy. You may also make this contribution in the memory of someone by writing their name(s) in the blank space.
All proxies must be received by the Independent Inspectors of Election and Voting in Juneau before 5 p.m. Alaska Time, Friday, June 24, 2022. Proxies received after that date and time will not be voted at the annual meeting and will not be eligible for the $50 incentive. Shareholders, please join us in Juneau at Centennial Hall, or online for the annual meeting on Saturday, June 25, 2022. Coronavirus mitigation measures will be in place during the annual meeting for the protection of shareholders, and the meeting may convert to virtual-only if necessary, as a result of health and safety circumstances.
We greatly appreciate your participation in the Sealaska election and annual meeting.
