New York, New York — The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“Bank” or “FHLBNY”) is now formally soliciting nominations for Directors to serve on its Board of Directors (“Board”) for terms commencing on January 1, 2014, the Bank announced in a letter sent to its members on Friday, June 28, 2013. In total, six Directorships will be up for election in 2013. Two of these Directorships will reflect the addition of two new seats to the Board.

“I encourage our members to be involved throughout the entire election process, as one of the greatest strengths of the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York is the depth and diversity of our Board,” said Alfred A. DelliBovi, president and CEO of the FHLBNY. “The guidance our Board provides helps management ensure that the Bank continues to meet the needs of our members and the communities we all serve. With two new seats and four existing seats accepting nominations, I look forward to adding valued experience and expertise to an already strong Board in 2014.”

In total, four Member Directorships – one seat representing the Bank’s New Jersey members; two seats representing the Bank’s New York members; and one seat representing the Bank’s Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands members – are up for election in 2013. In addition, two Independent Directorships are to be elected in 2013. This total of six Directorships includes two new seats to be added to the Board in 2014 – one New York Member Directorship and one Independent Directorship.

The Bank’s official Certificate of Nomination was included in materials sent to members on June 28th.  Eligible stockholders may, using the Certificate, nominate one person for each of their region’s open Member Directorships.  Separately, those individuals interested in being nominated for the two Independent Directorships must first submit an Independent Director Application Form to the Bank.  A copy of the Application Form can be found here in the section entitled “About the FHLBNY’s 2013 Director Election”.  All Certificates of Nomination and Independent Director Application Forms are due at the Bank by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31, 2013.
