The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas is now accepting External Linkapplications for its Community Development Advisory Council (CDAC). While we will consider candidates from all sectors, we are especially interested in community leaders in digital inclusion, childcare and philanthropy, as well as bank Community Reinvestment Act officers.

About the CDAC
The CDAC is composed of community, banking, and labor leaders from throughout the Tenth Federal Reserve District. The Tenth District includes Colorado, Kansas, western Missouri, Nebraska, northern New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Wyoming. Because we have several returning CDAC members from Oklahoma, we are well-represented by that state and seeking no new members. We are especially interested in applicants from Kansas and western Missouri.

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

The Kansas City Fed appoints council members to three-year terms and asks CDAC members to attend two meetings a year, typically in the spring and fall. The Kansas City Fed reimburses travel expenses.

External LinkApplications are due 5:00 p.m. Central, Friday, September 30. We will notify all candidates of their selection status in December. New CDAC members will be announced in January 2024.

Please note: The online application webpage times out. To ensure your External Linkapplication is submitted successfully you are encouraged to complete your responses to the questions in a Word document, then copy/paste your responses once you're ready to submit.

We will send you a confirmation email to let you know we received your submission. That typically arrives within a few minutes of submitting the form.
