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 2018 Director Election

Two Member Director seats representing New Jersey, one Member Director seat representing New York, and two districtwide Independent Director seats are now up for election for terms that will each begin on January 1, 2019.

Please look out for your Director Election ballot package which was mailed to eligible members on October 5, 2018. Your vote is very important, so we ask that you take the time to review the package upon receipt and promptly return your ballot to the FHLBNY. Your ballots must be received at the FHLBNY by no later than 5:00 p.m. on November 5, 2018. A list of key dates in this year’s election is available here: List of Key 2018 Election Dates.
