Wisconsin banks received letters from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago (FHLBC) in mid-June soliciting bankers for nominations for the 2017 Election of FHLBC Member Directors. There is once again an open seat this year as the current Wisconsin Director, David Locke, McFarland State Bank, is term-limited. 

In the past, WBA has endorsed a specific individual for the membership's consideration; however this year, the WBA Board decided to go a different direction and instead provide a central location to serve as a resource for bankers during the voting process. The nominees submitted their photos, biographies, and statements about their interest in serving on the FHLB Board to WBA, all of which are compiled at www.wisbank.com/FHLBelection.
