The Green Bay Packers announced late last week that their annual meeting of shareholders will be held virtually on Thursday, July 23 at 11 a.m. The Packers Board of Directors met last weekend at its regular quarterly meeting and approved the decision to hold the shareholders meeting virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A formal notice of the Annual Meeting, was sent and emailed last week to shareholders. The Packers continue to request shareholders receive their materials via email and vote online moving forward, as it is the most sustainable and resource-friendly method. Shareholders can register for this process online at www.packersowner.com.
The materials were sent to more than 360,000 shareholders.
Shareholders were also provided information on five candidates for them to vote to join the Packers Board of Directors. The candidates that the shareholders were asked to vote to join the board were: Jan Allman, CEO, Marinette Marine Corporation, a Fincantieri Company; Wilson Jones, President/CEO, Oshkosh Corporation; Mark Kasper, Owner/CEO, Amerhart Ltd.; John Schmidt, President/CEO, U.S. Venture Inc.; and Bobbi Webster, Public Relations Director, Oneida Nation.
During the meeting, a couple board of directors will also take on emeritus status. Those board of directors are Terrance Fulwiler and Michael McClone. Fulwiler has been a member of the Board since 2004. McClone has been a member of the Board since 1998.
If you are a shareholder and have not received any communications from the team in the last 12 months, the Packers are asking you to contact Shareholder Services to update your information. Shareholder Services can be reached via phone at 855-8GO-PACK (855-846-7225) or email at [email protected].
We are month away from seeing football hopefully. The shareholders meeting is like the unofficial kickoff to the season as training camp is getting under way and the team gives us a glance at the upcoming season. Information about the Annual Meeting also can be found online at www.packers.com/community/shareholders or www.packersowner.com.
Go Pack Go!
