FAQ

Alabama Ag Credit holds an election annually for members of its Board of Directors and its Nominating Committee. The board is responsible for establishing policies, providing strategic direction, hiring the CEO, providing a plan of management succession, and overseeing management of all major association functions. The nominating committee is responsible for identifying and selecting qualified candidates for the expiring board of directors positions and for the nominating committee for the following year. 

To be considered as a candidate in the 2021 elections, we request you submit your candidate profile information here. This profile will assist the nominating committee in evaluating interested stockholders; however, the committee will be provided the list of all eligible stockholders for consideration as a candidate for a position on the board or the nominating committee in the 2021 elections.

Nominating Committee 

The nominating committee is a committee of the stockholders, comprised of four members, who are elected by the voting stockholders of Alabama Ag Credit to serve a one-year term. Nominating committee members identify, evaluate, and nominate at least two willing and qualified candidates for each open director position. The board of directors has engaged an independent outside consultant to assist the nominating committee with the nominating process. 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 director-candidates.

Region 1 West - Joy E. Reznicek
Region 2 Central - David C. Garrett
Region 3 Wiregrass - Monica T. Carroll
