A recent post on NANA Regional Corporation’s Facebook page read, “We have NANA shareholders all over the world. What’s it like (on this January day) where you are?”
Jeanie in Phoenix answered, “75 and perfect.” Robert at Red Dog Mine said it was “kind of cold”, to describe minus 40 degrees. In the NANA region, Michael stated his thermometer read 36 below in Deering. Reports kept coming in—from Chicago, New York, Oklahoma...
Like our shareholders, members of our NANA family can be found all over — often in extreme places—from the Arctic to Antarctica, in Australia, in the Far East, out on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, or on a sled dog trail in Alaska. We might be producing feature films or working on top-secret, scientific projects. As our workforce and geographies expand so do our experiences and opportunities.
In this issue we meet some of the people in our far-flung family. Louisiana-based John Conerly from our newest company, Grand Isle Shipyards (GIS), shares a safety program, LIFE, with all of NANA. Bob Crockett and Deborah Schildt of Piksik, our film support company, each bring 30 years of experience in the film business to our feature film and advertising production customers. From the far north to the far south, Bob Tellez has made life more comfortable for those who work in the world’s most remote locations. And we get to learn about what it takes to build a team from our NDC chairman and sled dog musher Luke Sampson.
We look forward to the continued success of all NANA no matter where we serve. We are at home—on the Ice, in the outback, or above the Arctic Circle.
What’s it like where you are? We want to hear from you.
