The regional Native corporation for Southeast Alaska holds its annual shareholders’ meeting Saturday, June 23.
Sealaska Corporation has about 21,000 shareholders, many living outside the state.
Saturday’s meeting is at Juneau’s Thunder Mountain High School. It begins at 10 a.m. with a shareholder’s fair and comments from board of directors’ candidates and both sides of a term-limits resolution.
The meeting also includes a business report and election results. It ends at about 5 p.m. with a question-and-answer session for shareholders.
Critics say the hour planned for that session is too short, and is an attempt to muzzle opponents. Corporate officials say it was just an estimate and will run longer if needed.
Sealaska’s annual meeting will be webcast live through the corporation’s website. Only shareholders can attend the meeting in person or on the internet.
