Sealaska is recruiting for a seat on its board of directors that became vacant when Director Ross Soboleff passed away in July. Soboleff, elected to the board in 2014, saw his role on the board as a way to contribute his knowledge and experience in a positive way. Ross chaired Sealaska’s governance committee, and part of his legacy is helping create a process to fill vacant board seats by encouraging highly-qualified shareholders to apply in the case of an unexpected vacancy.
