Philadelphia, January 15, 2020—The Federal Reserve Board recently announced Reinvestment Fund CEO, Don Hinkle-Brown, to serve as Chair of its Community Advisory Council (CAC). Mr. Hinkle-Brown previously served a term as Vice Chair beginning in 2018.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to guide the work of the Community Advisory Council as chair in 2020,” Hinkle-Brown said. “Thank you to outgoing chair Andrea Levere for her excellent leadership of the Council. I look forward to continuing the mission of the CAC with the talented and diverse team.”

The CAC is composed of a diverse group of experts and representatives of consumer, workforce, and community development organizations and interests, including from such fields as affordable housing, economic development, labor, small business, and asset and wealth building. CAC members provide information, advice, and recommendations to the Board on relevant policy matters and emerging issues of interest.

The CAC was formed by the Federal Reserve Board in 2015 to offer diverse perspectives on the economic circumstances and financial services needs of consumers and communities, with a particular focus on the concerns of low- and moderate-income populations. Marc Norman, Associate Professor of Practice University of Michigan, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning was selected to serve as Vice Chair for 2020.
