MidAtlantic Farm Credit is a member-owned cooperative, and part of the national Farm Credit System. The Association’s board of directors and nominating committee members are Farm Credit borrowers, elected by other borrowers, and work together to make sure the Association continues to fulfill its mission to support America’s farming families.

“Part of what makes us unique at Farm Credit is our cooperative structure,” says Tom Truitt, CEO of MidAtlantic Farm Credit. “Our board members are comprised of our borrowers, who are considered members of Farm Credit and have a voice in how we operate as an Association. We appreciate everyone who took the time to vote in this year’s election.”

The 2019 election took place via mail, with the ballots going out to all voting stockholders in April. For more information about MidAtlantic Farm Credit’s board of directors, or to learn how you can become a candidate for a board position, please visit mafc.com/about/leadership/board-directors.
