Director Elections

June 29, 2017

Commencement of the annual Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines director election is underway. Based on Federal Housing Finance Agency designations for Bank directors, member director elections will take place in the states of Alaska, Missouri, South Dakota, Utah and Hawaii and members in those states will each fill one member director seat in its respective state. Members located in the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam will vote in the state of Hawaii. One independent director seat will also be filled in 2017 through a district-wide election.

The nomination and election process for member and independent directors will be conducted electronically through Survey & Ballot Systems (SBS), an outside vendor experienced in administering online elections in a secure environment. On June 29, SBS emailed the Bank’s official announcement of election to eligible voting members in all states. Members in the states of Alaska, Missouri, South Dakota, Utah, Hawaii and the territory of Guam will receive an online member director nomination certificate, and eligible voting members in all states in the Bank’s district will receive information regarding independent director application forms. Member director nomination certificates and independent director application forms must be received by August 3, 2017.

Individuals interested in being considered for the independent director position must submit an Independent Director Application Form to the Bank by the nomination deadline of August 3, 2017 5:00 PM Central Time.
