It’s Time to talk open enrollment
Over the past several years, we have heard shareholders talk more and more about 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 a shareholder survey last fall to begin to gather information on shareholders’ opinions about opening enrollment. We are also distributing a series of special newsletters and holding a series of informational meetings, where we will share information on the benefits and impacts of opening enrollment. We are also asking shareholders to be involved in the discussion by sharing their questions, comments, concerns and opinions with us.
It is important to remember that just because we are exploring the idea does not mean that enrollment is being opened. Opening enrollment must be approved by a shareholder vote, and a vote on this issue is not scheduled at this time. If shareholders continue to express support for opening enrollment, the issue may be put before shareholders for a vote in 2019.
