Northwest Farm Credit Services has 44 branch offices located throughout Washington, Montana, Idaho and Oregon. Each branch office (or in some cases, combination of offices) has a Local Advisory Committee consisting of three to six local advisors, who are appointed by customers.
Local advisors provide the Northwest FCS Board of Directors direct access to customer feedback on issues important to Northwest FCS. They serve as a communications link between customers and the board and management to help Northwest FCS stay in tune with customer needs. Local advisors also act as a resource in developing, assessing and recommending candidates to the Nominating Committee for open positions on the board.
