ASTAC Annual Meeting’s Return to In-Person

This fall has proven to be the rainiest on record for the state and normally that would keep people from getting out, but during the week of September 12th ASTAC’s team and board held the 2022 annual meetings on the North Slope and had a great turn out. Quorum was met for every community, through online voting, mail-in ballots and in-person meeting attendance, exceeding membership participation of years past.

Point Hope, Point Lay, and Atqasuk incumbents John Long, Jr., Sophie Tracey, and Della Segevan were re-elected to new three-year terms on the board of directors. ASTAC’s team and board would like to thank the membership for their participation in this year’s voting process. In addition to the three board seats all districts voted and successfully passed two bylaw amendments.

The cooperative was grateful to hold its meetings in-person for the first time in a couple years. The management team was able to share information about recent retired capital credits, executive reports, and project updates throughout the week. Members had positive feedback at each meeting which greatly contributes to the direction of the co-op.

ASTAC CEO and General Manager Jens Laipenieks said, “it is great to have returned to in- person meetings. The turnout and balloting participation continue to increase year-over-year and it’s great to have such an active membership. Thank you to our district communities and facility hosts for a wonderful meeting week. We look forward to seeing everyone for Swoosh.”
