Notice of 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders
Friday, February 12, 2021

The 2021 Sealaska annual meeting of shareholders will be held virtually on Saturday, June 26, 2021 via a live webcast. Please watch, your inbox and Sealaska social media platforms for further details.  

Under Sealaska rules and election procedures, any qualified shareholder may seek a position on the Board of Directors by following the requirements of Sealaska bylaws. The election policies provide any qualified candidate for the Board of Directors the opportunity to include his or her name on the Sealaska proxy, proxy statement and mailings.  

As Sealaska’s business evolves, so do the qualifications and experiences that are needed to help shape its future, said Jodi Mitchell, current board vice chair. Prospective board members should have experience in business and finance, have high integrity and character, and be grounded in cultural values and familiar with traditional ways of life. Because of Sealaska’s business platform related to ocean health, experience in seafood business, marine science, engineering, construction or remediation – especially internationally – are highly desirable. 

Director Morgan Howard added that independent and critical thinking, collaboration and professionalism are behaviors that effective directors share.  

“We are a for-profit corporation that can only provide shareholder benefits if we make a profit,” Howard said. “So, business knowledge and experience are mandatory. Of course, I always want us to be Native people engaged in business and not businesspeople who happen to be Native. You must know why we are in business – it’s for our people. That’s the real bottom line – our people.”
