The Boston Fed relies on its board of directors and regional advisory councils to help inform policymaking and efforts to promote sound growth and financial stability in New England and the nation. Our board and councils are made up of business and industry leaders from across the First District, who meet regularly with our Bank’s leadership to share perspectives on business conditions, community development, and the local economy.
