Advisory Council Nominations

FHLBank San Francisco is accepting nominations through April 23, 2021, for an open seat on the Bank’s Affordable Housing Advisory Council (Advisory Council). The Advisory Council member who is vacating the open seat serves low- and moderate-income housing needs in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The 15-member volunteer Advisory Council helps shape the Bank's Affordable Housing Program (AHP) and the other homeownership and economic development grant and credit programs the Bank makes available to its member financial institutions. The Advisory Council is made up of senior executives representing a diverse range of affordable housing and community development organizations operating in the Bank's district of Arizona, California, and Nevada. The Bank promotes diversity and inclusion at all levels of our organization, including the Council. Learn more about our commitment to Diversity and Inclusion.

Members of the Advisory Council must reside in the Bank's district and be employed by a nonprofit or for-profit organization that provides or promotes housing for low- and moderate-income households or by a community lender.

The Council meets in person with the Bank's Community Investment team and representatives of the Bank's Board of Directors at least quarterly. Council members are expected to attend substantially all Council meetings. The Bank reimburses travel expenses for Council member attendance at in-person meetings.

Community and nonprofit organizations located in the district may submit nominations for the Council. Individuals may also nominate themselves.  

To nominate a candidate to the Advisory Council:

  1. the nominator must complete and submit the 2021 Advisory Council Nomination form

The deadline to submit the nomination and application forms to Community Investment is April 23, 2021. Late or incomplete nominations will not be accepted.
