Announcement from Sealaska Director David Goade

Director – David Goade

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you, the shareholders of Sealaska, for the opportunity to serve you this past year as a director. I was extremely honored to represent you and learned a tremendous amount about the important role the corporation plays in the lives of our shareholders. It’s long been a goal of mine to serve our people and I’m thankful I was able to do that.

Over the past year, I’ve had a chance to reflect on my long-term plans. I’m at a point in my life where I have the opportunity to spend more time with my family and I’ve decided to retire from my position as the Executive Director of the Baranof Island Housing Authority in Sitka. In doing so, I also made the difficult decision to finish my term that ends in 2020 and not seek re-election to the Sealaska board.

Finally, I want to thank the family of the late Ross Soboleff for the opportunity to serve the remainder of Ross’ term after his passing.


“On behalf of the board of directors, I would like congratulate David Goade on his retirement and thank him for a great career serving our people in many different capacities, including his brief time with us in the board room.  

David rose to the top of a large pool of great shareholders when we set out to fill the vacancy left by the untimely passing of Director Ross Soboleff. 

I know that the pool of great candidates in this current election and our rigorous recruitment process helped give him the confidence that the company is on a good path and will be in good hands.  We wish him the best.”

Joe Nelson, Sealaska Chair
