Resolution 19-01: Reduce the Quorum Requirement for Shareholder Meetings
The Ahtna Board of Directors recommends that you vote YES to approve Resolution 19-01 to reduce the quorum requirement for shareholder meetings. See your Proxy Statement for further details on this important resolution.
The Agenda for the Annual Meeting can be viewed here.
Annual Meeting Packets
One Annual Meeting packet per shareholder household was mailed on April 19. Shareholders eligible to vote will receive individual proxy information but each shareholder household will only receive one packet with the Annual Report, Proxy Statement, Annual Meeting Agenda, Draft 2018 Annual Meeting Minutes and Proxy Prize list. For the first time, shareholders were also able to opt-in to receive their Annual Meeting materials electronically. These changes have brought substantial costs savings to the company in printing and postage as well as help to reduce our environmental impact.
In order to give shareholders the opportunity to receive as much information as possible before marking their vote, the Board has decided to hold proxies until April 26. Proxy Voting Forms will be sent to individual shareholders on April 26 and online voting will open at www.ahtnavote.com.
How To Vote
This video answers some common voting questions and shows you how easy it is to cast your vote online using the eProxy voting system. Shareholders also have the option to submit paper proxies, which can be mailed, faxed or delivered in person to the Election Tabulators. Voting in elections ensures that your voice is heard. It is important for shareholders to vote and ensure the long-term strength of Ahtna by electing a Board of Directors. In addition to providing guidance and leadership, the Board establishes policies for achieving Ahtna’s strategic goals.
Candidate Profile Videos
Ahtna gave candidates running for the 2019 Ahtna, Inc. Board of Directors a chance to record a message to share with voters. We hope these videos will help you to learn more about each of the candidates running and aid you in making an informed vote. You can view the videos by logging into the eProxy site using the shareholder ID/PIN that you were mailed on April 19. Videotaping was made available to all candidates, but participation was not mandatory.
This year only, special Proxy Prizes are being offered to help increase quorum! See the flyer in your packet for all the details and vote early and online for the most chances to win. *All deadlines are shown in Alaska time.
