The Idaho Ag Credit Board of Directors
The Idaho AgCredit board consists of seven directors, including five directors who are also borrowers, elected by Idaho AgCredit members, and two directors elected by the board, including one "outside director" who must not be a borrower. Directors are responsible for representing the best interest of the organization and its borrowers.
Customers can impact the business by electing the board of directors who set policy.
Idaho Ag Credit board elections include a regional nominating process that ensures sound representation from throughout our seven-office area. Stockholders vote for all open positions since directors represent the interests of all stockholders.
