Election of Director

      On December 12, 2012, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle (the “Seattle Bank”) announced the election of David F. Wilson to serve as an independent director on its Board of Directors (the "Board") effective January 1, 2013. Mr. Wilson, whose current term as an independent director is expiring on December 31, 2012, will continue to serve as an independent director, assuming the seat vacated by retiring director Jack T. Riggs, M.D. The term of Dr. Riggs expires on December 31, 2014. The Board is composed of member and independent directors, as discussed in the Seattle Bank's Form 8-K filed on November 15, 2012, and in "Part III. Item 10. Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance" in the Seattle Bank's 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") on March 22, 2012.

David F. Wilson has served as an independent director of the Seattle Bank since 2007. Mr. Wilson has served as chairman of Idaho Housing and Finance Association ("IHFA") since 2009 and as an IHFA commissioner since 1995. He has served as chief executive officer of Wilson Construction LLC, a residential and commercial construction company in Ketchum, Idaho, since 1977. Mr. Wilson is also an active member of the National Association of Home Builders ("NAHB") and served as the organization's president in 2005. Currently, he is an NAHB senior life director and chairman of the Home Building Industry Disaster Relief Fund. Mr. Wilson's experience in representing the community interests in housing supports his qualifications to serve as an independent director of the Seattle Bank.
