Gana-A'Yoo Shareholder Census
As your village corporation, we are always interested in learning more about our shareholders and descendants, especially during these recent times when we were unable to gather in person for Shareholder Information events. This census is to gather information from current shareholders to better understand the potential number of eligible descendants if Gana-A’Yoo was to open enrollment. The information provided will also be helpful in identifying and creating future opportunities and programs for shareholders and descendants.
Shareholders who submit their census form by August 6, 2021 will be entered to win two (2) cash prizes of $500.
The census form can be downloaded here and returned at one of the options below:
Mail: 1001 E. Benson Blvd., Ste. 201, Anchorage, AK 99508.
