LINKED BALLOT AND PROXY ARE DATED MATERIAL FOR PROMPT RETURN

Notice is given to the Members of the Washington State Maritime Cooperative, a Washington non-profit cooperative, that the annual meeting of Members will be held at the WSMC office co-located with the Marine Exchange of Puget Sound, 100 West Harrison St, Seattle, WA 98119, Phone: 206 448 7557 at 10 AM, on Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

The Annual Meeting will be for the following purposes:

1. To elect for a three-year term three directors to WSMC's Board, representing the following industry groups:  Ferries, Foreign Liner Cargo/Cruise Vessels, and Foreign Non-Liner Cargo Vessels.

2. To transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting or any adjournment thereof.

At the 2019 Annual Meeting three industry segment directors are scheduled for election.  The term of office of WSMC's Board of Directors is staggered so that all Board positions do not turn over at once, insuring continuity on the Board.  The industry segments that are scheduled for election are Directors for Ferries, Foreign Liner Cargo/Cruise Vessels, and Foreign Non-Liner Cargo Vessels.

If your company is principally involved in either of these industry segments, please use the linked ballot for voting for your representative to WSMC's Board of Directors.  Each candidate for the Board positions indicated on the linked Ballot has been nominated by his/her respective industry group, but qualified write-in candidates are also welcomed.  We ask you to complete the ballot and return it to WSMC by fax (206 443-3839), by mail, email, or you may complete the ballot and bring it to the Annual Meeting.  Voting will be by written ballot only. 

Also linked is a General Proxy.  If a representative of your company is not able to attend the Annual Meeting in person it is extremely important to WSMC that you complete and return the proxy, authorizing your approval of any other business that may come before the meeting.

IMPORTANT:  To insure the necessary representation at the Annual Meeting you are urged to SIGN AND RETURN THE LINKED GENERAL PROXY PROMPTLY.  Please return your proxy, and ballot, if applicable, by fax (206 443-3839), email, or mail, if possible, by February 28, 2019.  This will not prevent you from voting in person if you so desire.

If you have any questions concerning any of the above, please call WSMC's Executive Director, Roger Mowery, at 425-486-3501.  Thank you for your continued support of WSMC.

Sincerely,

Dan Nutt
PRESIDENT
