More about the Louisville Branch


Louisville Branch Board of Directors: The board provides one of the most direct ways for our team to gauge economic conditions in the region. Representing all parts of the Louisville Zone, the seven board members play a major role in helping the St. Louis Fed monitor the area’s economic pulse.

Advisory Councils and Boards

Industry Councils: The St. Louis Fed’s Industry Councils are 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 who gather semiannually to discuss business conditions.

Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council: This council is composed of 12 executives of smaller financial institutions across the Eighth District. They advise on the credit, banking and economic conditions facing their institutions and their communities.

Community Development Advisory Council: Leaders from organizations throughout the Eighth Federal Reserve District serve on this council. They represent nonprofit organizations, financial institutions, universities, government and foundations.

Branch Educator Advisory Boards: These educators strengthen the branch’s connections to schools and universities. They provide feedback about St. Louis Fed materials and opportunities for teachers.
