Board of Directors Chart

The three organizations are jointly managed and share the same group of knowledgeable staff members and the same nine member local board of directors, seven elected by the members (borrowers) and two board-appointed "outside" directors. The elected directors are fellow Southeast Missouri farmers and Progressive Fam Credit Services customers.
