I set up the Articles of Organization for the American States and Nations Bank and helped establish its first business office here in Alaska. I also function as its first Comptroller, a responsibility I will not relinquish until I am sure that the endeavor is properly safeguarded, organized, and in good and honest hands going forward.
These very simple statements--- Articles of Organization--- condense the nature, purpose, and fundamental organizational structure and accountability of managers within the bank.
There is, of course, a great deal of work and security development behind all of it that is not immediately apparent, but becomes so upon reflection. Each of the principal managers, including the Comptroller, have multiple functions at the start that are too complex, ephemeral, and varied to describe in the Articles as any part of the permanent position within the organization.
