The Advisory Council meets quarterly to advise the Bank’s board of directors on ways in which the Bank can better carry out its housing finance and community lending mission, including, but not limited to, advice on the low- and moderate-income housing and community lending products, market conditions, and credit needs in the Bank’s district, and on the use of the Bank’s Affordable Housing Program (AHP) products and services for these purposes. Members of the Advisory Council receive a stipend for each quarterly meeting they attend and are reimbursed for travel, lodging, and meal expenses. Quarterly, in-person meetings of the Advisory Council typically require one and a half days, beginning at noon.
Appointments to the Advisory Council are for a one, two, or three-year term with a maximum of two consecutive terms. The Florida and Washington, D.C. appointees will serve an initial term beginning in January 2016.
The Georgia appointee will fill a vacancy for the remainder of an unexpired term that ends in December 2016.
