Board of Director Elections
The Association’s geographical territory is divided into nine director regions. One stockholder from each region is elected to represent his or her region as a director for a three-year term. Stockholders from outside of the territory are assigned to the region where his or her loan is serviced. The terms of the nine stockholder-elected directors are staggered so that three director positions are up for election each year in order to ensure Board stability and continuity across the election cycles.

The Nominating Committee is a committee of the stockholders, comprised of nine members and alternates, who are elected by the voting stockholders of Louisiana Land Bank to serve a one-year term. The Nominating Committee is not a committee of the Board but is formed and controlled by the voting stockholders of the Association. The Nominating Committee’s independence is critical to the success of the cooperative structure of the Association because it ensures that representatives of the voting stockholders, not the current Board members or the Association’s management, choose the slate of candidates for the director positions and for the Nominating Committee.
