CoBank’s board consists of directors elected by its customer-owners across the country, as well as a number of appointed directors. Elected directors serve four-year terms and are chosen from six separate geographic districts. Many of our directors are actively engaged in farming, ranching and other rural industries.
As a result of CoBank's merger with U.S. AgBank, the bank’s board temporarily expanded to 32 members on January 1, 2012. The size of the board will be reduced to 24 elected directors on January 1, 2013. In addition, the board of the merged bank will continue to have appointed directors.
