Thank you to all those who tuned into this year’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders, held Saturday, June 6 via virtual meeting webcast.
This year, shareholders were entitled to vote in the election of CIRI directors by returning a paper proxy or completing an electronic proxy (eProxy) using CIRI’s web-based proxy system. CIRI is pleased to report that more than 50% of shareholders who voted did so online, which is quick and easy and better for the environment, as it eliminates the need to mail a paper proxy. CIRI is pleased to continue to offer online voting in the future.
Again this year, CIRI offered to donate $1 to the Brother Francis Shelter for every shareholder with a valid, active proxy (for any proxyholder or candidate) on file by the proxy deadline. The shelter provides temporary, emergency accommodation to Anchorage’s homeless population, serving 2,359 homeless individuals and providing 83,363 nights of stay in 2019. CIRI’s planned donation to Brother Francis is estimated to be $3,500.
