About the Council

The CDAC is composed of community, banking and labor leaders from throughout the Federal Reserve’s Tenth District, which includes Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Wyoming, northern New Mexico and western Missouri. More information on our current CDAC members can be found here.

Council members serve three-year terms and are expected to attend two meetings per year, typically in the spring and fall. Travel expenses are reimbursed by the Kansas City Fed.

The Kansas City Fed established the CDAC in 2001 to provide Bank leaders with a deeper understanding of the community and economic development issues affecting low- and moderate-income communities. CDAC members provide feedback on the Bank's community development research, programs and resources. They also receive updates on the national and regional economies.
