This planned transition aligns with the board's retirement policy and refreshment strategy. In conjunction with Ms. Jenning's departure, the Board of Directors has approved a reduction in the number of authorized directors to 12.

Mid-America Apartment Communities (MAA) announced the retirement of Toni Jennings from the Board of Directors, effective immediately preceding the May 21, 2024 Annual Meeting of Shareholders.

Eric Bolton, Chairman of the Board, expressed appreciation for Ms. Jenning’s substantial contributions stating, “Toni’s combined tenure spanning approximately 12½ years, encompassing both Post and MAA, has been immensely valuable and impactful to our growth and success. We extend our gratitude for her dedicated representation of our shareholders’ interests and wish her the best in her future endeavors.”

The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, in collaboration with the Board of Directors, continuously maintains and executes director succession and refreshment strategies. In anticipation of Ms. Jenning’s departure, along with future planned retirements, the Board of Directors nominated three new directors for election at the 2023 Annual Meeting of Shareholders. This proactive measure temporarily increased the size of the board to 13 to allow for a seamless transition. Under the current succession strategy, we expect to further reduce the size of the board in coming years.
