TKC seeks to keep all shareholders informed so they can take full advantage of the opportunities we provide in order to enhance shareholders’ quality of life. If you have any questions, please take a look at our shareholder FAQ below.
How do I change my address?
Change of address forms are available at either the Aniak or Anchorage TKC offices. Address and information updates can also be made via the Shareholder Portal at MyTKC.com. In addition, any of these forms are also accepted:
- Calista Corporation change of address form
- U.S. Post Office change of address form or postcard
- Any handwritten signed and dated note, form or letter from the shareholder stating the new address
If the shareholder is also a custodian, please list each of the wards so an address change may be made for them as well. Each individual shareholder, over the age of 18, must provide the change of address form in writing with their written signature consent. For example, a husband and wife must both sign the change of address form, or must fill one out separately. Also, the parents cannot sign these documents for the child after the child has turned 18.
Who can be a member of TKC’s Board of Directors?
Any shareholder, Class A or Class B, who is eligible and who wishes to run as a candidate for any seat on the Board of Directors of The Kuskokwim Corporation at the annual shareholders’ meeting, must complete and return a nominating petition and questionnaire form to the Anchorage office. Forms can be requested by emailing email@example.com. There are four board seats up for election each year. These are At-Large seats, meaning there are no residency requirements for Board Members. Each seat has a three-year term of office. There are no designated seats for Class A or Class B, as all seats are open to any shareholder.
