Anchorage, Alaska, Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula and the Pacific Northwest are the regions with the highest concentrations of CIRI shareholders and CIRI hosts a variety of events in these locations throughout the year. CIRI events offer shareholders an opportunity to mingle with CIRI directors and staff. CIRI Shareholder Relations staff and notaries are available at each CIRI-hosted event to assist shareholders in completing CIRI Stock Wills, and attendees are generally able to visit booths with information on services provided by CIRI-affiliated nonprofit organizations, meet and provide feedback to CIRI Shareholder Participation Committee members and participate in door prize drawings.
Lunch is typically served, and shareholders are asked to be respectful of their fellow shareholders by allowing Elders to get their food first, waiting until everyone has had a chance to get food before having seconds and waiting until the end of the lunch hour before taking “to go” servings.
Meeting dates and locations and RSVP information are announced in the newsletter and on the CIRI website. To ensure there is enough food, shareholders who plan to attend an event are asked to RSVP by the specified deadline in Qenek, on the CIRI website or by calling (907) 263-5191 or (800) 764-2474 and selecting option 5. Shareholders should bring identification and plan on checking in with their guests.
