The Association Board of Directors comprises 14 members – 12-stockholder elected and two appointed/outside. Farm Credit Mid-America directors are nominated for positions state-by-state within the Association’s four-state territory. Customers with voting stock are eligible to vote – customers purchase voting stock at the time of their loan origination.
The Association sent an information packet with detailed instructions, candidate information and ballots to eligible voting customers in September. Votes were cast online and by paper ballot.
“One of the many benefits of being a member of the Farm Credit Mid-America cooperative is electing directors and nominating committee members who work to make sure the Association remains strong so we can continue to work to secure the future of rural communities and agriculture,” said Bill Johnson, president and CEO of Farm Credit Mid-America. “We appreciate everyone who voted, making their voice heard.”
