Policies and Procedures

Teleconferencing Policy

1. Cook Inlet Aquaculture Association (CIAA), a 501c(3) non-profit corporation, recognizes that salmon rehabilitation and enhancement affects many diverse interest groups throughout the Cook Inlet drainage and acknowledges the valuable and important contribution these interest groups make by serving on CIAA’s volunteer Board of Directors.

2. CIAA welcomes active participation in the Board process and encourages Board members to personally attend CIAA Board meetings. In the event a Board member cannot personally attend a Board meeting, the Board member may participate via teleconference or videoconference under the following guidelines:

a. Board members wishing to participate in a Board meeting via teleconference or videoconference must notify CIAA staff prior to the meeting to allow CIAA staff to set up the system.
b. CIAA will not reimburse a Board member for any expense incurred to participate via teleconference or videoconference in a Board meeting.

3. Board Committees may allow members to participate via teleconference or videoconference. Conditions of participation will be set by the Board committee.

4. Board members are strongly encouraged to personally attend the Annual meeting in February.

5. CIAA may, at the discretion of the Executive Director, make CIAA’s teleconferencing or videoconferencing equipment available to other natural resource groups using CIAA’s meeting room. CIAA will not incur any expense from the use of the teleconferencing or videoconferencing equipment by other natural resource groups.
