The FED announced on Monday that it is accepting applications from individuals who wish to be considered for membership on the Community Advisory Council (CAC). The CAC was formed in 2015.

The Board expects to announce the appointment of CAC members in the fall of 2021. Applicants from previous years are encouraged to re-apply in 2021.
