First night­time share­hold­ers meet­ing set

Packer Plus - - News - Richard Ry­man USA TO­DAY NET­WORK-Wis­con­sin

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.
