Conversations with the Fed: The Federal Reserve Act

Why was the Federal Reserve formed 100 years ago? Are you curious about the evolution of the Fed’s roles and responsibilities over time? Ever wonder how the Federal Reserve Bank cities were chosen? What exactly does the Federal Reserve Act say about the Fed’s roles in areas like monetary policy, discount window lending, and banking supervision? And what part does the Helena Branch play in fulfilling the responsibilities of the Federal Reserve? For answers to these questions and more, join Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis General Counsel and Corporate Secretary Niel Willardson at the Helena Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis on August 5 for an educational presentation on the Federal Reserve Act in commemoration of the Fed’s Centennial.
