CIRI selected 14 new Shareholder Participation Committee (SPC) members following

CIRI selected 14 new Shareholder Participation Committee (SPC) members following the 2008 annual meeting of CIRI shareholders on June 7 in Anchorage.

The CIRI Board of Directors formed the Shareholder Participation Committees in 1995 to increase shareholder communications with CIRI specifically regarding the corporation’s mission, business operations, corporate policies and other matters. The three committees represent shareholders living in Anchorage, in Alaska outside of Anchorage and in the Lower 48 states and Hawaii. Each committee has nine members who are chosen by random drawing from shareholders interested in serving and who have correctly answered the questionnaire. Members generally serve staggered, three-year terms that begin at the time of selection and expire at CIRI’s annual meeting three years later.
