New England Advisory Council (NEAC)

The New England Advisory Council (NEAC) is comprised of leaders of small- to mid-sized businesses throughout New England, who provide insights into business conditions and on-the-ground economic realities.

Members advise the Bank about underlying trends in the economy as viewed through the prisms of their own companies and respective industries. NEAC members share perspectives on a range of business conditions and the implications for growth, employment, labor-market dynamics, wages, prices, capital spending, and access to credit, among other issues.

The NEAC meets quarterly with the Boston Fed president and senior leaders.
