Board write-in candidate information due Feb. 20

Shareholders interested in running for the CIRI Board of Directors as a write-in candidate, including those individuals not selected for the Board recommended slate, will have an opportunity to submit information for inclusion in CIRI’s election materials.

Write-in candidate information packets will be available from CIRI Shareholder Relations and posted on CIRI’s website at  on Jan. 31. Completed write-in candidate information packets must be received by CIRI by 5 p.m. Alaska Standard Time on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, via personal delivery at CIRI’s Shareholder Relations Department at 2525 C Street, Suite 104, in Anchorage; by fax to (907) 263-5186; or by mail at PO Box 93330, Anchorage, Alaska 99509.

In accordance with CIRI’s By-Laws and election policies and procedures, the names, photographs and appropriate personal statements of all eligible write-in candidates will appear in CIRI’s election materials. There is no charge to a write-in candidate to have his or her appropriate information included. This process enables any eligible CIRI shareholder to run for election to the CIRI Board of Directors with minimal effort and expense, and reduces the number of mailings and materials shareholders receive.
