Four new and seven returning members to serve in 2023 on the council that advises the Federal Reserve Board on the economy, lending conditions, and other matters of interest to community depository institutions were announced by the Fed Thursday.

The Fed said Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC) members are selected from representatives of commercial banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions serving on local advisory councils at the 12 Federal Reserve Banks and serve three-year terms, with one member of each of the Reserve Bank councils chosen for council membership.
