4/28/05 Annual Meeting - Special Board meeting - Election of officers:  Chairman - Lipscomb = y; Christopherson = N 6 N N y y y y N

5/12/05
5/18/05
Executive Sessions continued from the 5/11/05 board meeting. Subject: Termination of CEO Joe Griffith. NOTE: Why is this rated 40 when 10 is normally the highest importance? Because nothing is higher then hiring a CEO. This process was conducted in total secrecy so we can only insert a non-vote rating item on this crucial action. This rating can be thought of as rolling up what would normally be multiple other votes had the deliberations been done in the open. We are not suggesting anything was wrong with handling this item behind closed doors as it was a personnel item and the subject could have requested it be done in the open but he did not do so. It is the only rating related to the termination of CEO Joe Griffith except for the vote to go into the first executive session on 5/11/05. There were no public votes that revealed the positions of directors on the retention question for Griffith. Chugach Consumers has arrived at its conclusions as to the individual directors from interviews since then over the following year and from the assessment of attitudes and the observation of the public actions of CEA directors. 40 Y Y n n Y n Y

4/19/06 Special Board Meeting #1 called by directors Vazquez, Kreig, Kalenka because Chairman Christopherson refused to include properly submitted motions on the Regular Board agenda. Christopherson went along with Chugach management's desire to even suppress public knowledge of the text of the motions themselves: 1) Release of Information on Labor Negotiations economics, 2) Release
of Information regarding Benchmarking
. This meeting was scheduled to occur in the middle of the regular monthly board meeting. This meeting was boycotted by a coordinated quorum [Christopherson, Lipscomb, Cottrell, Davison] in apparent violation of the Alaska open meetings statute. This boycott also sunk the regular board meeting! Although there was no vote, the boycott of this meeting will be rated as a vote because of the importance of the subject matter avoided.  More on item 2): Benchmarking is the comparison of CEA to other utilities to determine economic efficiency and performance and setting measurable goals for accountability to the consumers.  The information to be released in this item is also described in the 4/10/05 Alaska Journal of Commerce.

4/26/06 Special Board Meeting #2 called by directors Vazquez, Kreig, Kalenka because of Chairman Christopherson's continued refusal to include properly submitted motions above.  Christopherson refuses to permit even the making of motions by Directors Uwe Kalenka, Ray Kreig, Elizabeth Vasquez.  Director Kreig ordered by Chairman Christopherson not to discuss the motions even though all were inside an executive session of the board!!  Nothing was allowed to be known to those in the audience at the meeting by use of the tactic of immediately moving to adjourn the meeting which can't be debated. On move to adjourn. 9 y N y y N y N
4/27/06 Special Board Meeting #3 called by directors Vazquez, Kreig, Kalenka because of Chairman Christopherson's continued refusal to include properly submitted motions above. Held at Egan Center just before CEA annual membership meeting. This meeting was boycotted by a coordinated quorum [Christopherson, Lipscomb, Cottrell, Davison] in apparent violation of Alaska open meetings statute. Although there was no vote, the boycott of this meeting will be rated as a vote because of the importance of the subject matter avoided. 8 n Y n n Y n Y

IX.C.-Board Policy 128 Confidentiality - Puts back restrictions on director record keeping of executive sessions. This motion repeals reforms  made six months earlier to Board secrecy policy (#128). It reimposes secrecy and prevents the members from learning about mistakes and waste committed by management and the board. 8 N N y y y y a
8/2/06 II.-Sign CEO Bill Stewart Employment Agreement.  NOTE: Why is this rated 40 when 10 is normally the highest importance? Because nothing is higher then hiring a CEO.  Because this process was conducted in total secrecy this is the only vote related to the permanent hire of Bill Stewart as CEA.  It can be thought of as combining what would normally be at least five other votes.  Unnecessary "Golden Parachute" was added to Stewart's contract 40 y N y y y y N

11/15/06 IX.D.-Release of Labor Information Prior to Final Approval by the Chugach Board of Directors  Vasquez motion to ensure that membership knows about labor contract terms a reasonable time (3 weeks) before final Chugach board ratification. Although refused, at least her motion forced CEA to post the contract on the web six days before the 12/5/06 board's attempt to pass it. That made possible the discovery by Chugach Consumers of the outrageous giveaway in the terms of the contract. Chugach Consumers then filed an emergency complaint [U-06-135] at the Regulatory Commission of Alaska and obtained a Superior Court injunction stopping it. 8 n Y n n n n Y
