The 2004 Green Bay Packers shareholders' meeting will take place Wednesday, July 28, at 10 a.m. in the Resch Center, across Oneida Street from Lambeau Field.<p>
Last year, about 2,500 of their part-owners met in the annual meeting, and for the first time in the newly built Resch Center. Thanks to the Packers' completed redeveloped stadium, shareholders received a rosy financial forecast for their favorite team. The Packers officially announced an after-tax operating profit of $15.5 million, a jump of $11.7 million over the previous fiscal year. The team's fiscal year ends on March 31.
The Packers have nearly 111,000 shareholders. More than 2.8 million shares of stock were represented at last year's meeting, or 60.16 percent of the stock outstanding.
Each meeting usually is highlighted by coach and general manager Mike Sherman's state of the team address, treasurer John Underwood's report, and president Bob Harlan's question and answer session with shareholders.
The Packers will provide further details regarding the event as the date nears.
