Corporate Governance

Corporate Governance

The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY), like all the other Federal Home Loan Banks, is governed by a Board of Directors, comprising Member Directors (who consist of officers and directors of member institutions) and Independent Directors (who are not affiliated with member institutions). Member Directors are elected by the FHLBNY’s membership on a statewide basis; Independent Directors are elected by the FHLBNY’s membership on a districtwide basis. The FHLBNY also has a Housing Advisory Council, which reports annually to the Federal Housing Finance Agency on the FHLBNY’s low-income housing activities. The advisory council consists of members from community-based non-profit organizations to advise on the low-income housing needs of our district.

About the FHLBNY’s Director Election

Director Election Announcement packages containing nomination certificates and other related information regarding the 2020 Director Election process were electronically transmitted to all eligible stockholders in our District on June 26, 2020. One Member Director seat representing New Jersey, two Member Director seats representing New York and two district-wide Independent Director seats will be up for election later this year for four-year terms that will each begin on January 1, 2021.

Regarding Board Diversity

The FHLBNY’s Board of Directors consists of a talented group of dedicated individuals that benefits from, among other things, demographic (including gender and racial) diversity, and we expect that this will continue in the future. When considering potential nominations for Member Directorships and persons who might be interested in Independent Directorships, the FHLBNY suggests that diversity be kept in mind.

For more information, Director Election questions can be sent to the General Counsel.
