Boards of Directors

Directors play an important role in the effective functioning of the Federal Reserve. They participate in the formulation of monetary policy by sharing diverse perspectives on business activity, labor markets, and credit conditions in each District. Directors are experienced business and community leaders who act as a link between the Federal Reserve System and the public. In addition to providing grassroots economic information used in Federal Open Market Committee policy deliberations, directors serve as Fed ambassadors, helping to communicate the Fed's mission in their communities.
