First nighttime shareholders meeting set
The Packers will hold their first nighttime shareholders meeting in July in Lambeau Field.
The meeting will be at 7 p.m. July 25. Training camp begins the same week. The Packers said the training camp schedule will be announced later.
The meeting time will allow more Green Bay area shareholders to attend the meeting. Shareholders from around the country attend the meeting, many of them making it part of a vacation and training camp visit, or a day trip from other parts of Wisconsin.
“From time to time, we’ve received feedback that the daytime meeting conflicts with the regular workday,” said Aaron Popkey, director of public affairs. “This will allow more shareholders to work that into their schedules.”
The annual meeting will coincide with the kickoff of the Packers’ 100th year of football.
It will be Brian Gutekunst’s first shareholders meeting as general manager and his remarks will be eagerly anticipated by team owners. Former general manager Ted Thompson made it a point to say as little as possible about the team or players during shareholders meetings, but Gutekunst has given hints he might be more forthcoming.
Revenue for the past year likely will be reported in July, before the shareholders meeting. The meeting takes place in the stadium bowl regardless of weather.
Up to four tickets will be issued for each shareholder account.
