Joining the FHLBI Board

FHLBI's Board of Directors is comprised of both Member Directors and Independent Directors. The Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency determines the size and composition of the Board. Independent Directors must make up at least 40 percent of the Board’s membership. Director eligibility requirements are found in 12 C.F.R. § 1261.5. 

Member Director candidates are nominated by FHLBI Members and are elected on a state-by-state basis. An individual who accepts a nomination must complete a Member Director Eligibility Certification Form.

For the 2018 election, the nomination period for Member Directors will open on June 22, 2018, and close at 5 p.m. (ET) on July 23, 2018.

Independent Directors are elected at large by all FHLBI Members. Candidates are not nominated by Members; instead, individuals who would like to be considered for candidacy should deliver a completed Independent Director Application Form by U.S. mail or courier to the following address:
