Board of Directors

Under the leadership of a board of directors, Fannie Mae strives daily to fulfill its public mission of providing mortgages to low-, moderate-, and middle-income Americans.

As the company reported in its Sept. 11, 2008 Form 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), upon the appointment of the Conservator on Sept. 6, 2008, in accordance with the Regulatory Reform Act, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), as Conservator and by operation of law, immediately succeeded to all rights, titles, powers, and privileges of Fannie Mae, and of any director of Fannie Mae with respect to Fannie Mae and its assets. Accordingly, the Board of Directors no longer had the power or duty to manage, direct, or oversee the business and affairs of Fannie Mae. On Nov. 24, 2008, FHFA, as Conservator, reconstituted Fannie Mae's Board of Directors and directed Fannie Mae regarding the function and authorities of the Board of Directors. The directors of Fannie Mae shall serve on behalf of the Conservator and shall exercise their authority as directed by the Conservator.

By charter, our board is made up of 13 members or such other number that the Director of FHFA determines appropriate. FHFA has directed that our board will have a minimum of nine and not more than 13 directors.
