Federal Reserve Talk with Tom Barkin

(Virtual Meeting)

Please join DC LERA for a conversation with Federal Reserve Board Bank of Richmond President Tom Barkin.  The Federal Reserve plays a critical role in the economy, and in employment relations.  Mr. Barkin leads the Fed system that covers Maryland, Virginia and DC.  From economic growth to income inequality and related issues this should provide a great kick off to our fall series of virtual meetings.
