Calista (cha-LIS-tuh) Corporation Shareholders reelected three directors to the Board in a strong support of continued operational successes, increased Shareholder benefits, and Board stability. More than 59 percent of all outstanding shares voted, the fourth highest voting rate in Calista’s history. These results were certified by the Inspector of Elections, Sramek-Hightower.
Reelected this year were Paul George Guy, Johnnie Evan and Wayne Don for Administrative Units 4, 5 and 6, respectively. Each elected Director serves a three-year term.
Calista Shareholder votes solely decide Board elections. In 2013, discretionary voting of under-votes by the Calista proxy committee was eliminated. Under-votes are now divided equally among all of the candidates listed in the proxy.
Calista Shareholders are more connected than ever. More than 6 in 10 Calista Shareholders cast their votes online at calistavote.com, the second highest response since online voting was introduced in 2014. Additionally, more than 1 in 3 voting Elders cast their proxies online.
