Understanding the Shareholder Enrollment Process
Storyknife, October/November 2018 edition
It’s an exciting time to be a Descendant of Calista Corporation. The corporation is continuing to enroll new Shareholders. Being a Shareholder comes with many benefits like dividends, job opportunities and the opportunity to vote. If you have not enrolled as a Shareholder, here’s how:
STEP 1: DETERMINE YOUR ELIGIBILITY
To become a Calista Corporation Shareholder, you must be either a Descendant of an original Shareholder or have missed the original 1971 enrollment. If you are a Descendant that means you are a child, grandchild, or direct descendant to an original Calista Shareholder, and you have not registered for descendant shares in another regional corporation, you may be eligible for Class C stock. If you were born before the 1971 issuance date and missed original enrollment, you are eligible to apply for Class D stock.
STEP 2: GATHER YOUR PROOF
If you’re eligible, it’s easy to collect the right documentation. Types of documents required could include a birth certificate, Tribal ID, social security card or more. A more detailed list of the paperwork requirements for Class C and Class D stock is available at Enroll.MyCalista.com.
STEP 3: FILL OUT AN ENROLLMENT APPLICATION
You must submit your required documentation along with a completed enrollment application. You can submit your application online at Enroll.MyCalista.com. This is the easiest way. You can also download a paper application or visit the Anchorage or Bethel office to request a paper application. Mail paper applications to the address on the forms.
STEP 4: WAIT FOR APPROVAL
Once your fully completed enrollment application is submitted it takes the enrollment team up to 60 days to review and verify the application. If you provided an email address with your application, you will receive notification of your approval/denial via email.
STEP 5: GET YOUR SHARES!
Two or three times a year Calista Corporation issues new shares. You will receive a confirmation letter or email with information about the number of shares, your certificate number, and more.
STEP 6: REGISTER FOR A FREE MYCALISTA ACCOUNT
Once you’re a Shareholder, it’s important to create an account on MyCalista.com, a free resource for all Shareholders. With an account you can update your contact information, sign up for direct deposit, receive dividends, newsletters and other information, view financial history and shares information, and much more.
