The 2020 UIC Shareholder’s Annual Meeting has been re-scheduled as a virtual online meeting to be held on Saturday, October 24th at 1:00 PM. This year’s meeting will be virtual, online only, instead of an in-person meeting at a physical place. Online access and login information will be sent to all UIC Shareholders in their proxy ballot packets in early September and will also be available through the UIC shareholder portal at: https://portal.uicalaska.com/home and through the UIC Stock Department at 1-855-663-8421.
This year’s proxy ballot includes three seats on the Board of Directors with terms ending this year. In addition, Shareholders will be able to vote on whether or not the UIC SHAREHOLDER TRUST will be established as an ANCSA Settlement Trust to benefit UIC, its shareholders, and their descendants.
In order to protect the health and safety of UIC Shareholders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and following State of Alaska guidance limiting meetings attendance size, the UIC Board of Directors decided this spring to reschedule the 2020 Annual Meeting to a later date. Since then, the Board has further decided to hold the 2020 Annual Meeting in an online format so that shareholders can participate without risking exposure.
Because the 2020 Annual Shareholder Meeting will be online with no registration at a physical meeting, all voting must be done by proxy ballot, which will need to be returned to UIC by the deadline of 5:00 P.M. on Friday, October 23rd, 2020 (for “Early Bird” proxy prize information see our summer newsletter and your proxy packets). This year’s Shareholder comments will also only be accepted via the self-addressed, postage paid comment card in the proxy packet, or by email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please feel free to contact the UIC Stock Department at email@example.com.
