Greetings from the President & CEO
Spring is ﬁnally here and it’s time for Spring subsistence activities to begin in our villages.
As leads open in the ice, some hunters will head out to sea looking for walrus, oogruk and
other kinds of seal, while other hunters will start hunting migratory birds that return to our
region to nest. When the birds start nesting, that provides another good Springtime staple
in many of our homes — bird eggs. Spring hunting gives us the opportunity to replenish
our food supplies while we enjoy engaging in the subsistence activities that have sustained
us for thousands of years.
The BSNC Board recently hosted a shareholder information meeting in the Seattle area,
which was a tremendous success. We had approximately 233 shareholders who attended,
some of whom had moved from our Region more than ﬁfty years ago. They appreciated the opportunity to meet with
the Board and each other, and get an update on our operations and ﬁnances. We were fortunate to have an Inupiat
dance group, led by Thomas Octuck, Sr., perform for us. In addition, we had two shareholders who were over ninety
years old who attended the information meeting. We learned that many had watched our last annual meeting over the
internet when we webcast it for the ﬁrst time ever, and expressed strong support for webcasting future annual meetings.
We intend to webcast all our future annual meetings. In addition we plan to implement online voting so that our
shareholders can vote their proxies online for the next annual meeting in October. More information on the process for
online voting will be provided closer to the date of the annual meeting.
BSNC’s major source of revenues continues to be earned from the SBA 8(a) and Small Business Programs. Alaska
Native Corporation participation in the SBA 8(a) Program continues to face repeated attacks from certain members of
Congress who wish to bar our participation in the Program. Given the importance to BSNC of government contract
revenues, management has been very active in eﬀorts led by the Native American Contractors Association and the Alaska
Federation of Natives to help defend our participation in the 8(a) Program. Thanks in part to revenues earned from our
government contracting eﬀorts, we recently pledged $200,000 to the Kawerak Cultural Center which will be constructed
in Nome. We also signiﬁcantly increased our contributions to the Northwestern Alaska Career and Technical Center and
the Bering Straits Foundation, in support of shareholder and descendant education and training. The recently adopted
shareholder bereavement program is also supported by earnings from government contracting. This program provides
original shareholders and certain of their family members with a $500 bereavement payment to help cover funeral
expenses, and has proven very helpful to our families in need. Almost 100 families have received assistance under the
bereavement program since its adoption.
May is graduation month, and on behalf of BSNC staﬀ and the Board of Directors, I would like to extend our sincere
congratulations to our shareholders and descendants who are graduating from high school, college, and graduate school.
We are all proud of your accomplishments.
I would also like to congratulate the newly crowned 2011-2012 Miss Indian World Marjorie Tahbone, who will be the
tribal ambassador for more than 500 diﬀerent nations in the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii and Canada for the next
year. She sealed her win with a demonstration of Alaska Native games, including the one-arm reach and one-foot high
kick, explaining that the games were traditionally important for survival and strength. Marjorie is a student at the
University of Alaska Fairbanks double majoring in Biological Sciences and Alaska Native Studies with a minor in Inupiaq
language in Alaska Native Studies, and a Bering Straits Foundation scholarship recipient. She is of Inupiat and Kiowa
Indian heritage, and the daughter of Sandy Tahbone, a BSNC shareholder, and Carlton Tahbone, of Nome.
Happy Spring everyone! BSNC management and the Board hope you all have a successful, happy and safe Spring season!
