Providing Valuable Support by Serving on a Federal Home Loan Bank Board

 Tuesday, April 7, 2020, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET

 Moderator: Esther Aguilera, President & CEO, Latino Corporate Directors Association (LCDA)


The Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) system comprises 11, government-sponsored banking cooperatives. Local financial institutions join the FHLBs to borrow money so they can provide home loans and community credit. Given the situation our nation and the world is in today, serving on a FHLB bank and stewarding such valuable resources is crucial. Representation on the banks’ boards, however, has been mostly White and male. Some progress has been made, but after much effort to push for disclosure and diversity overall on the FHLB boards, women and minorities remain woefully underrepresented. Join us and learn more about what FHLBs look for when considering candidates for board service.

Open to LCDA members only. To register, sign up HERE!
