Farm Credit Mid-America’s Board of Directors sets policy and provides strategic direction to the Association’s leadership. This year, three directors’ terms were expiring, one seat each in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Each director serves four years on the 14-member Board. Twelve of those positions are stockholder-elected and two are outside directors appointed by the Board.
Customers with voting stock purchased at the time of their loan origination were eligible to vote in this year’s elections, which began on May 6 and closed on June 3.
The ballot was created, printed and mailed by a third party vendor, which also gathered, tabulated and reported the election results. Customers cast votes online and by paper ballot.

Their guidance helped us navigate the many challenges of the global pandemic while keeping our customers at the heart of everything we do. We look forward to continuing to work with our board to sustain our financial strength and remain a reliable source of credit for our customers.”
