CIRI hosted a Cook Inlet Regional meeting in January. Cook Inlet tribes, village corporations, nonprofits and CIRI reaffirmed their commitment to continue quarterly meetings through 2013. Participants included tribal entities, ANCSA village corporations and CIRI-founded nonprofit organization representatives.
“The purpose of the meetings is to share information with the representatives of all Cook Inlet Alaska Native people. We had a series of these meetings last year and the consensus of our group was that they should continue,” said Greg Razo, CIRI vice president, government contracting. “During the meetings, we hear about upcoming projects, business and employment opportunities and issues affecting tribes and nonprofits in the region.”
The mission of CIRI is to promote the economic and social well-being and Alaska Native heritage of our Shareholders, now and into the future, through prudent stewardship of the company’s resources, while furthering self-sufficiency among CIRI Shareholders and their families.
