Board of Directors

Voices of the Fed wordmark

How is your community reflected in our work? Directors and advisory council members share their perspectives. Watch the videos and read the blogs.

As required by the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, each Federal Reserve bank is supervised by a board of directors. These boards are composed of three classes of directors (A, B and C) with three members in each class who are from outside the Reserve bank and are familiar with economic and credit conditions in their respective Federal Reserve district.

  • Class A: Elected by member financial institutions in that district to represent the member financial institutions
  • Class B: Elected by member financial institutions in that district to represent the public with consideration to the interests of agriculture, commerce, industry, services, labor and consumers
  • Class C: Appointed by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System to represent the public with consideration to the interests of agriculture, commerce, industry, services, labor and consumers

Each Reserve bank branch also has a board of directors. The Board of Governors appoints some branch directors, and the Reserve bank appoints the others.

For information on gender and racial/ethnic diversity, and sector representation of Reserve bank directors across the System, see the Board of Governors’ website.
