In January, the St. Louis Fed launched an electronic distribution service to replace many of the paper mailings sent to depository institutions. This service, known as ED, provides Eighth District customers with a faster, easier and more efficient way to obtain and act on information from the Federal Reserve. And by Oct. 1, it will be the only way to receive many announcements and notices on changes to regulatory information and operating circulars from the Fed.
To subscribe to ED, simply go to www.stlouisfed.org and look for "E-Mail Alerts." There, you can sign up for the specific information you'd like to receive online. Some of the benefits of ED include: immediate notification, no limits on who can receive information, better-targeted mailings, the ability to change your subscription at any time, and no fees or charges.
To gauge customer satisfaction with ED, the Bank posted an online survey for subscribers in July. The survey also measured the usability of the service and solicited suggestions for improvements. We're looking at the results now for ways to improve ED in the future.
If you have questions about ED or how to sign up, contact Tracie Mueller in St. Louis at (314) 444-8810 or 1-800-333-0810, ext. 44-8810. You can also reach her by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
