Candidates for Election

Roxanne Drake-Burkhart

“My name is Roxanne Drake-Burkhart and I’m asking for your vote at our next Annual Meeting.  I am Tlingit Raven/Dog Salmon and was born and raised in Sitka. My parents are Barbara Borgen (Sam) and the late Paul Drake.  My grandparents were Jacob Sam and Andrew/Bessie Kitka (Kanosh). I have lived in Juneau since 1986 with my husband, Ted Burkhart, and together we raised our children Zachary and Stephanie.

My employment history has mainly been working for Inside Passage Electric Cooperative since 1995.  I’ve held many accounting positions, including billing officer, senior accountant and presently controller.  I’m responsible for oversight of all accounting functions, as well as all state and federal reporting.  I’ve held other accounting positions at Tlingit-Haida Regional Housing Authority, Sealaska and Klukwan Inc.

I would like to thank the shareholders that elected me to the Shee Atiká board seat in 2018.  It has been an honor and privilege to represent our shareholders.  One of the reasons I ran for the Shee Atiká board was to improve transparency both at the board and management level and to help provide better communication with shareholders.  There are only four ways to communicate with our shareholders; quarterly newsletter, new shareholder portal and in person informational and annual meetings.  Please reach out to the office if you need help receiving a newsletter or getting set-up for the portal.

I believe that our young shareholders pursuing a higher education should bring their knowledge back into the boardroom and run for an open seat.  This is our corporation and we have very talented shareholders that could lead us into the future.   2024 brings new hope and a brighter outlook for our corporation.

As a current Shee Atiká Board Member, I would like to utilize my education and work experience for you and request your continued support at our next annual meeting.



Lowell Frank

“I am Lowell Frank, and I have had the honor of serving on the Shee Atiká Incorporated board of directors since May of 2021. Although there has been a great deal of progress made in the last three years I feel there is still much to do to ensure continued success and sustainability of the corporation. Shee Atiká’s business enterprises have begun to bear fruit, through the efforts and experience of the business team that management has put together. It is critical that we have a board that is knowledgeable and supportive in the for-profit business world in order that we can continue the growth in a sustainable manner.

My background is in the building material industry. I have managed lumber yards in Sitka, Salinas California and Rock Springs Wyoming. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from University of Phoenix, which I earned while working full time to become a manager of the lumber yard. I currently live in Puyallup, Washington and work for a building supply company, selling building materials to Alaska.

I have a personal connection to the corporation that goes deeper than simply being a shareholder, since my father, Nelson Frank was an original director and I personally witnessed early struggles to get the corporation off the ground, as well as the struggles to keep things going after incorporation.

I have been a recipient of educational financial assistance from Shee Atiká and am very grateful that past boards had the foresight to implement this program as well as other programs to benefit shareholders. In order for us to maximize the benefits we are able to provide our shareholders our business side must be profitable, sustainable and have the support of the board of directors.

Please give careful consideration with your votes, to help elect progressive, business minded board members to fill the available seats on the board to give Shee Atiká the greatest opportunity to remain on an upward trend for a sustainable and profitable future.

I am very excited at the prospect of continuing to serve on the board of directors and working with the rest of the board and management to pursue profitability and success for many years to come. I would appreciate your support to make that a reality.”


Alyssa London

“I am honored to be a candidate for the board of Shee Atiká, a corporation with a rich history and deep ties to our community. My journey with Shee Atiká began with a gift from my grandfather, Ernie Boyd, who had the foresight to enroll in the corporation and gift shares to his descendants. His mother, Lucille Boyd, moved the family to Sitka from Angoon after her husband Oscar passed, seeking solace and connection with relatives. This heritage grounds me in the traditions and values of our people, as an Eagle of the Killerwhale Chasing Seal House, with roots in Angoon, Sitka, and Ketchikan.

Known by my Tlingit name, Yáx̱ Ádi Yádi, meaning Valuable Child, I carry forward the legacy of my ancestors with pride and commitment. My education at Stanford University, tenure at Microsoft, and current role as a business owner and NBC/MSNBC contributor have equipped me with a diverse skill set that I believe can serve the interests of Shee Atiká and its shareholders.

During an interaction with the executive team when I conducted a training on culturally resonant self-introductions, I witnessed the corporation leaders’ commitment to its people and heritage. My deep professional experience working with tribal leaders and native corporations in marketing, communications, and storytelling can further this commitment by ensuring transparent communication with shareholders and effective messaging to the public and our business partners.

If elected, I will work diligently to uphold the values and integrity of Shee Atiká, fostering growth and prosperity for all shareholders. Thank you for considering me for this important role.”

Shareholder Resolution 2024-01 to Reduce the Quorum Requirement for SAI Shareholder Meetings

The Shee Atiká Board of Directors unanimously recommends that you VOTE “YES”.

Alaska law generally provides that a majority of the outstanding voting shares must be present in person or by proxy for there to be a quorum for a formal shareholder meeting. This can be a difficult standard to meet and if quorum is not achieved by the time of the meeting it must be postponed until a quorum can be achieved. The cost to achieve quorum or to postpone a shareholder meeting to achieve quorum can be significant.

Alaska law also permits Alaska Native Corporations, including Shee Atiká, to reduce the quorum requirement for their shareholder meetings to one-third of the voting shares. To change Shee Atiká’s quorum requirement, two-thirds (2/3) of the shares represented in person or by proxy at the 2024 Annual Meeting must VOTE “YES” on Shareholder Resolution 2024-01.

When voting on Shareholder Resolution 2024-01, you have the same number of votes as the number of shares of Shee Atiká voting stock that you own. All of your Shee Atiká voting shares must either be voted “YES” or “NO”, you cannot split your vote by voting some shares “YES” and some shares “NO”.

The voting on Shareholder Resolution 2024-01 is separate from the election of Directors at the 2024 Annual Meeting.

Please note that regardless of whether the shareholders vote to reduce the quorum requirement to one-third of issued and outstanding voting shares, this revised quorum requirement will not apply to the 2024 Annual Meeting.
