Alaska Senate Passes Bill Allowing Virtual Shareholder Meetings

JUNEAU – The Alaska Senate today unanimously passed Senate Bill 24, allowing corporate shareholder meetings and nonprofit member meetings to be held electronically.


“The ability to meet electronically during the pandemic has proven to be invaluable to these organizations,” said Senator David Wilson, R-Wasilla, the bill’s sponsor. “It is imperative that we update our laws to account for improvements in technology. This commonsense approach enables corporations and nonprofit organizations to operate more efficiently and with greater flexibility than in the past.”


Previous emergency orders have allowed for these electronic meetings, but that authorization has expired.


SB 24 passed the Senate by a vote of 15-0, and is now on its way to the Alaska House of Representatives for consideration.
