Doyon in the Community
Doyon, Limited is pleased to have been involved in several important events this past month.
Village Corporation Training
Doyon successfully completed its second annual village corporation training in August. There was a record number of attendees, with 73 participants representing 21 village corporations from across the Doyon region.
The topics covered included strategic planning, banking, and finance, settlement trust, legislative advocacy and protocols to empower, among many others. In the year ahead, Doyon will provide more information on topics of interest to participants.
This year Doyon hosted its annual back-to-school fair in Wasilla on August 21, 2019. A great turnout of 79 shareholders attended the event. Staff was available to update records, share current opportunities within the Doyon Family of Companies, and distribute backpacks and school supplies to students in attendance.
