Board of Directors

Advisory Councils and Boards

Industry Councils

The St. Louis Fed’s Industry Councils are also a significant part of the conversation. The four councils—Real Estate, Agribusiness, Transportation and Health Care, the last of which is headed by the Louisville regional executive—consist of industry leaders around the District who gather semiannually to discuss business conditions.

Community Development Advisory Council

Executives from organizations throughout the Federal Reserve's Eighth District serve on the Bank’s Community Development Advisory Council. The executives represent nonprofit organizations, financial institutions, universities, government and foundations.

Branch Educator Advisory Boards

Members of the Educator Advisory Boards strengthen the Branch’s connections to schools and universities, and provide feedback about materials and opportunities for teachers.

Outreach & Education

Former St. Louis Fed President and CEO Jim Bullard met regularly with Branch leaders, business and civic groups in the four zones that make up the St. Louis Fed’s District to share insights on the U.S. economy, gather views from community members and better understand local economic conditions.

Community Development
