Open Enrollment

Over the past several years, shareholders have discussed the possibility of opening enrollment to descendants of original Gana-A’Yoo shareholders. As your village corporation, we believe it is important to listen and respond to the questions, concerns, needs and ideas of our shareholders.

With this in mind, we undertook two (2) shareholder surveys to gather information on shareholders’ opinions about opening enrollment. A series of special newsletters and informational meetings were held in 2017 and early 2018 on the topic. Shareholders are encouraged to be involved in the discussion by sharing their questions, comments, concerns and opinions with us.

Board Recommendations

The Gana-A’Yoo, Limited Board of Directors has approved a vote of the shareholders to open enrollment at the annual shareholder meeting on May 2021. The annual report and proxy will be mailed out the last
week of March 2021.

The Gana-A’Yoo, Limited Board of Directors recommends awarding of 25 shares to eligible descendants with a one-quarter blood quantum. These shares are life estate. Shares are non-voting until the shareholder is 18 years of age. New shares will be awarded up to 100,000 additional shares or a timeframe of 10 years, whichever comes first.
