After serving on Ames National Corporation’s (the “Company”) Board of Directors for 15 years and as Chairman of the Board for five years, Thomas H. Pohlman has elected to resign as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Pohlman will remain on the Company’s Board of Directors until the end of his current term, which expires April of 2023. John Nelson, Chief Executive Officer, and President of the Company commented, “We are thankful for the leadership that Tom has provided the Company and its affiliate banks as CEO, Chair, board member and President of First National Bank over the past 22 years.  He has been a great mentor and sounding board for our management teams.” Mr. Pohlman will reach the Company’s policy maximum age for a director at the end of his current term.
