Industry Council Representatives

The St. Louis Fed's four industry councils—Agribusiness, Health Care, Transportation and Real Estate—provide a consistent and dependable line of communication about economic conditions between St. Louis Fed staff members and industry representatives throughout the District. The council members' observations complement the data and information developed through the Federal Reserve's Beige Book and meetings of the Reserve Bank's boards of directors. The councils meet twice a year.
