ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING &
BOARD ELECTION INFORMATION
MTA Annual Membership Meeting Postponed. Election to continue as scheduled.
The MTA Board of Directors has unanimously approved to postpone the in‑person portion of the Annual Membership Meeting scheduled for June 3, 2020, due to the severe and unprecedented public health disaster emergency facing the State of Alaska, MTA, and its members. A new date will be announced to members when conditions allow. The Board of Directors intends to proceed, as scheduled, with the election by mail and electronic balloting for director and Bylaw amendments; no in-person voting will be permitted.
There are two seats up for election. The first seat is being vacated by Catherine Fosselman, long-time MTA Board Director. Mrs. Fosselman is terming off the MTA Board this year. The second seat is currently held by Mr. Ken E. Kincaid, who is running for re-election and listed as an incumbent on the ballot.
