Farm Credit election results

Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, a $17.5 billion financial services cooperative serving more than 92,500 farmers and rural residents in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Tennessee, has announced that five customer-members have been elected to the organization’s Board of Directors.

The elected board members include new members Kaye Hurst Whitehead of Muncie, Ind., and Brandon Robbins of Cookeville, Tenn. The incumbents are Dan Flanagan of Campbellsville, Ky., and Andrew Wilson of Somerset, Ohio. Their terms run through October 2015. Additionally, Kathryn Eschbacher-Timberlake of Mauckport, Ind., was elected to fill a vacancy on a two-year term. Her term runs through October 2013.

They are a part of an 18-person board who meet monthly in Louisville, Ky., the cooperative’s headquarters, where they set policies and the overall direction for the association. Additionally, Farm Credit owner-members elected a 20-person nominating committee who will meet next June to select candidates for the 2012 cooperative elections. More than 8,000 members cast ballots in the elections. Participating in the election process is one of the benefits of cooperative membership.
