Federal Reserve Board Accepting Statements of Interest for Community Advisory Council

April 30, 2015


The Federal Reserve Board has announced it is accepting Statements of Interest from individuals who wish to be considered for membership on the Community Advisory Council (CAC). The CAC will advise the Board on issues affecting consumers and communities and will complement two of the Board’s other advisory councils—the Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC) and the Federal Advisory Council (FAC)—whose members represent depository institutions.

The CAC will serve as a mechanism to gather feedback and perspectives on a wide range of policy matters and emerging issues of interest to the Board of Governors and aligns with the Federal Reserve’s mission and current responsibilities. These responsibilities include, but are not limited to, banking supervision and regulatory compliance (including the enforcement of consumer protection laws), systemic risk oversight and monetary policy decision-making, and, in conjunction with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) and Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), responsibility for implementation of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA).

Additional information about the selection process, including instructions for submitting a Statement of Interest, can be found in the Board’s Federal Reserve Notice.
