Board member on leave of absence

Sergie Chukwak, a member of the Bristol Bay Native Corporation Board of Directors since 2010, is on a leave of absence following criminal charges filed earlier in the month.

Statement from President & CEO Jason Metrokin

Like many of our shareholders, I was saddened by the tragic news to come out of Naknek this week.

I was also deeply troubled to learn of the sexual assault allegations against one of our directors.

BBNC maintains high ethical standards for everyone who represents the corporation. The situation is under review by our company leadership and legal advisors. The board member concerned is currently on a leave of absence pending the resolution of this matter in the courts.

Most of all, our thoughts and prayers are with the Lopez and Bakken families and others who were affected, for whom I know this is a time of profound grief.
