Understanding Rural Representation on the Doyon Board of Directors
Shareholders frequently have questions about Doyon’s rural director requirement.
The Doyon articles of incorporation contain a formula that determines the number of board seats that must be held by a rural director.
Rural directors are defined as shareholders who reside within the Doyon/Tanana Chiefs Conference region but outside of the Fairbanks North Star Borough.
Currently, rural directors must hold 20 percent of the 13 board, or a minimum of three seats. Shareholders may elect any number of rural directors at any time.
