Board of Directors

Members of Calista Corporation’s Board of Directors are elected by Shareholders to provide guidance to the company on a  variety of matters. Their duties include responsibility for hiring and reviewing the performance of the company’s president/CEO, establishing broad policies and objectives, for approving budgets and ensuring the availability of adequate financial resources. 

Calista encourages Shareholders to provide feedback and direction to the company by speaking with their representative board members, or by serving on the Board directly. Elections are held annually, with the final count of votes determined by an independent Certified Public Accounting firm at the annual meeting. Terms last for three years.

Board of Director candidate solicitation generally opens a few months before the annual meeting, with the deadline for candidate solicitation announced at that time. To learn exactly when candidate applications are accepted, please watch for the Storyknife newsletter, special mailings, and/or announcements online such as the Calista Facebook page. To ensure you are notified of candidate openings, please provide Shareholder Records with your current contact information. Board of Director candidates must be at least 18 years old and must be a Calista Corporation Shareholder.
