Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On December 13, 2012, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the "Bank") determined that John C. Helmken, II, is no longer eligible to serve as a director on the Bank's board of directors as a result of a merger. Mr. Helmken previously was elected as the member director designated for the State of Georgia. All member directorships are designated by the Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency as representing members located in a particular state, and member directorships must be filled by a person who is an officer or director of a member institution located in that state. The member institutions of which Mr. Helmken was an officer or director, The Savannah Bank, National Association and Bryan Bank & Trust, both merged into a South Carolina financial institution. Based on applicable law, this resulted in Mr. Helmken's becoming ineligible to serve as the member director for the State of Georgia with a term expiring on December 31, 2014. In accordance with the Federal Home Loan Bank Act, the Bank's board of directors will elect a director to fill the vacancy for that directorship.




Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
