How to become a CIRI participation committee member


Who may serve:
The three committees represent shareholders and descendants living in Anchorage, in Alaska outside of Anchorage, and in the Lower 48 states and Hawaii. Each committee consists of nine members who must:

1) Be a shareholder or confirmed, registered descendant and at least 18 years of age.
2) Have access to a telephone and email.
3) Have not been convicted, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, of a felony within five years of applying to serve.
4) Have not been found, as determined by a court of competent jurisdiction, to have engaged in fraud or illegal business practices, or to have breached a confidentiality agreement with the corporation. CIRI directors, management staff and their immediate family members (i.e., husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, children) are not eligible to serve on a committee, nor are CIRI employees or directors and management staff of CIRI subsidiaries or non-profit affiliates.

Members generally serve staggered, three-year terms that begin at the time of selection and expire at the Annual Meeting three years later. Former members must typically wait six years before being eligible to serve again.
