The report card, which is part of Doyon’s Get Out the Native Vote initiative, is intended to educate voters on the issues and candidates, and encourage voters to “voice their choice” in the election next month.

March 21st, 2009 Posted By: Morgan Howard No Comments


Doyon website topMorgan Howard Productions produced a video entitled, “Working Together” which was shown to the shareholders at the Doyon Annual meeting.  The video highlights Doyon’s ongoing committment to providing employment opportunities to its shareholders.  President Norman L. Phillips wrote a great letter in the paper earlier in the weekn entitled, “Doyon grows into economic engine” about workforce development for shareholders and all Alaskans.

Four directors were elected this year.  Jennifer Fate, Michael Fleagle, Walter Carlo and Christopher Simon.  Fate and Fleagle were re-elected and Carol and Simon replace long-time board members Florence Carroll of Juneau and Michael Irwin of Anchorage.

Florence Carroll  was not present at the meeting.  She asked for her name to be removed from the nomination list.  Mike Irwin was at the meeting and spoke directly after the election results were announced.  He was very gracious, sincere and in good humor as he spoke about his 15 years on the Doyon board.  He talked about the recent serious concerns in regard to his health and how he is now nearly back to normal.  Great news.
