FMB's Junior Board of Directors

Interested in Being a Part of the Jr Board in 2024-2025?

The Farmers & Merchants Bank’s Junior Board of Directors program began with the 2009-2010 school year and continues to grow in popularity each year.  The Junior Board is made up of high school seniors from Putnam and surrounding counties that are chosen by a selection committee (none of which are employed or directly affiliated with FMB).  Through this youth leadership program students are able to experience the interview process, gain leadership and teamwork skills, take a personality test and learn personal finance tips and tools that will serve them for years to come.  The Junior Board also gives students an opportunity to engage with students from other schools, bankers and other local business people as they participate in the monthly board meetings.  Plus, each Junior Board member gets paid for every meeting they attend!!!

Each year, our Junior Board of Directors volunteers for social events with FMB, including the LOBA Luncheon, Shred Day, etc. The Junior Board gains experience with speaking to the public by getting out into the community. By networking at these events, Junior Board members can likely make many connections that lead to endless possibilities!

Not all the fun and learning is done within FMB’s board room, we try to get the students out and about as much as possible.  In the past, we have taken them out to Rock Eagle’s ropes courses and the Chick-Fil-A Backstage tour. There’s no telling what this year will bring!
