The Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta has begun the election to fill certain directorships on the Bank’s board of directors, including the member directorships in each of Florida, Georgia, and Maryland, and one independent directorship. The current Florida member director, Miriam Lopez, is subject to statutory term limits and cannot run for re-election.

The bank has sent eligible institutions information about nominating candidates from Florida for the board of directors, including the nomination certificate and the nomination deadline. The term of the directorships to be filled in this election begins on January 1, 2019, and ends on Dec, 31, 2022. Pursuant to the bank’s board-approved Equal Opportunity Policy Statement, which is available on the bank’s website, the bank encourages the consideration of diversity in nominating or soliciting nominees for positions on the bank’s board of directors.

Your participation in this nomination process is important, and the bank encourages you to nominate eligible candidates. Individuals interested in being considered for the independent directorship must complete and return to the bank by 5 p.m. on July 9, the application and related forms that are available on the bank’s website at www.fhlbatl.com.
