Annual Meeting Webcast


Our shareholders live all over Alaska and the rest of the world. For many of you, traveling to the Annual Meeting is out of the question. Proxy voting ensures every shareholder voice is heard — even from thousands of miles away.

The eProxy system allows you to vote for board directors and ensures that we follow our bylaws, which require over 50 percent of our voting shares to be present for a valid annual meeting and for the election of our board.

When you give your proxy or eProxy to the Doyon proxy committee or to a voting Doyon shareholder who attends the annual meeting, your votes will be cast exactly as you wish. Voting typically starts 60 days before the annual meeting in mid-January, and closes in mid-March.

Board Election

Doyon’s Board of Director election serves to give new leaders a voice in the Boardroom. Through proxy voting, our shareholders determine who represents them each year.

At the 2022 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, four individuals were elected to Doyon’s 13-member Board of Directors. Elected with three-year terms ending in 2025 were Sonta Hamilton-Roach, Betty Huntington, Jerry Isaac, and Jody Potts-Joseph. 

The newly elected and re-elected board members will join existing board members Cheryl Cadzow, Walter “Wally” Carlo, Shirley Cleaver, Jennifer Fate, Charleen C. Fisher, Ph.D., Georgianna Lincoln, Marvin Roberts, Christopher Simon, and Orie Williams.

The Board Candidate Application Portal opens Wednesday, September 7. The election will take place during the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

We want to hear your voice

Here at Doyon, we celebrate the uniquely outstanding individuals who make up our vibrant communities.

Ranging from dedicated leadership, to cultural mentors and veterans, our Shareholder of the Year awards recognize our family, friends, and neighbors who selflessly give all of themselves to their communities and culture.

Awards are presented at the Annual Meeting in three different categories.
