Joshua Poag Joins St. Louis Fed’s Real Estate Industry Council

8/17/2016

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Joshua Poag of Memphis, Tenn., president and CEO of Poag Shopping Centers, LLC, has been named to the Real Estate Industry Council of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.

The St. Louis Fed created four District Industry Councils in 2006, each designed to provide the Fed with important feedback regarding economic conditions within a key Eighth District industry sector. The members’ observations—along with the economic data and information developed through the Federal Reserve Board's Beige Book, the St. Louis Fed’s Burgundy Books and meetings of the Reserve Bank's boards of directors—help ensure that conditions of Main Street America are represented in monetary policy deliberations in Washington.

Each council is supported by one of four of the Reserve Bank's offices: St. Louis (real estate); Little Rock, Ark., (agribusiness); Louisville, Ky., (health care); and Memphis, Tenn. (transportation). The councils meet twice a year.
