Council members serve staggered terms and are senior executives of banks, thrift institutions and credit unions from across the Eighth District, which is comprised of the state of Arkansas, and parts of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.
The new members take the place of outgoing members Kirk P. Bailey, CEO of Magna Bank, Memphis, Tenn.; H.

The Federal Reserve Board of Governors established its CDIAC in 2010 as a mechanism for community banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions (with assets of $10 billion or less) to provide input to the Board on the economy, lending conditions and other issues. Each of the Fed's District banks then established its own local advisory council, with one member chosen to serve on the Board’s CDIAC and to participate in meetings twice a year with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C.
