Farm Credit Mid-America announced at its annual meeting April 16, the seven candidates seeking election or re-election to the Association’s board, as well as candidates for the 2021 Nominating Committee.

Board of Director candidates and their home communities are:

  • Kevin Cox, Brazil, Ind.
  • Kaye Whitehead, Muncie, Ind.

  • Bill Legg, Westpoint, Tenn.

Farm Credit Mid-America is an agricultural lending cooperative serving more than 80,000 customers in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Customers with voting stock are eligible to vote and voting stock is purchased at the time of a customer’s loan origination. Voting begins on May 7 and closes June 4.

The Board of Directors sets policy and provides overall direction to the Association’s leadership. In 2020, three directors’ terms are expiring, one seat each in Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee. Each director serves four years on the 14-member Board. Twelve of those positions are stockholder-elected and two are appointed by the Board.

Voting-eligible customers will receive candidate information via mail, along with paper voting ballots and voting instructions via mail. Stockholders also can vote online where they can find additional information about the candidates.

Results will be announced in June. To ensure impartiality, the ballot is created, printed and mailed by a third party vendor that gathers, tabulates and reports on the election outcome.

“As growers and producers, board members have a deep passion and interest in the mission of Farm Credit Mid-America,” said President and CEO Bill Johnson. “Insights they have from their own and others’ operations – especially as we continue to deal with challenges created by the COVID-19 outbreak – help us continue to deliver the best products, services and experiences to our farmer-owners.”

Customers also will vote on the 2021 Nominating Committee by state. The 20-member committee – five from each state – selects candidates for both the Board of Directors and Nominating Committee. Candidates for Nominating Committee are:
