HousingNOLA Executive Director is a New Member of Community Advisory Council

Andreanecia Morris

NEW ORLEANS – Last month, the Federal Reserve Board announced six new members of its Community Advisory Council (CAC) including HousingNOLA Executive Director Andreanecia Morris (Louisiana), Memorial Community Development Corporation CEO Rev. Dr. Adrian M. Brooks (Indiana), Denver Area Labor Federation President Joshua Downey (Colorado), University of Michigan Associate Professor of Practice Marc Norman (Michigan), Co-Director of Project Vida Bill Schlesinger (Texas), and National Community Reinvestment Coalition CEO Jesse Van Tol (Washington D.C.). The announcement was made in a press release.

The new members will serve three-year terms beginning in 2019.

The Community Advisory Council (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. The CAC is composed of a diverse group of experts and representatives of consumer, workforce, and community development organizations and interests, including affordable housing and economic development. Members meet semiannually in Washington, D.C. to provide information, advice, and recommendations to the Board on relevant policy matters and emerging issues of interest.

"It's truly humbling to have been appointed to serve alongside such a well-respected and distinguished group of individuals," said Morris. "I am so grateful to the Board for providing me with this unique opportunity and platform to bring our country's affordable housing issues to the forefront and work collaboratively to find real and lasting solutions."

The six new members were selected from a pool of respondents to the Board's public call for applications. Morris and her fellow appointees will join nine existing members led by incoming Chair Andrea Levere and incoming Vice Chair Donald Hinkle-Brown.
