Upcoming Events - Spring/Summer 2022
Thursday, April 21, 2022
After two years of meeting virtually, Sealaska is excited to welcome shareholders back to in-person events this spring! Shareholders and descendants are invited to join Sealaska – including representatives from Shareholder Relations, Shareholder Development, board and leadership, Corporate Communications and more – at one or more of the many upcoming events. Each event will offer participants the chance to learn about business priorities and recent developments, Sealaska’s ocean health vision and upcoming workforce development opportunities, as well as update shareholder records, complete share transfers, connect with the Sealaska team and more.
In-person community meetings will be held in Anchorage, North Seattle, South Seattle and Juneau during the month of May. The Juneau meeting will also be webcast on MySealaska.com. Virtual-only meetings hosted on MySealaska.com include a resolution forum to discuss the blood quantum resolution, a candidates forum and an online community meeting. The annual meeting will be held in person as well as webcast on MySealaska.com on Saturday, June 25.
We hope all interested shareholders find events to attend that work with their schedules and comfort level – whether in person or virtually – and look forward to connecting with you soon!
