Want to learn more about the Richmond Fed? We offer a wide range of speakers on a variety of economic and educational topics.
The Richmond Fed offers speakers who can talk about a variety of topics, including economic conditions, banking issues, payments systems and policies, cash and currency, and the history and role of the Federal Reserve System.
We consider requests according to the audience, subject matter and the availability of speakers. Please note that the Bank’s resources are limited and speakers are only available to audiences within the Fifth District, which encompasses the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and most of West Virginia. This service is free and we ask that you not present any gift or memento to our speakers.
Our economists can discuss national and Fifth District economic conditions, labor markets, economic development, regional growth trends, state–local public finance development and more.
Our Supervision, Regulation and Credit department can provide information and resources for bankers on such topics as corporate governance, fraud and evaluating financial performance and portfolio risk.
Our Payments Services departments can provide current research on topics including innovative payments systems and technologies; payments-related policy issues that affect communities, merchants and financial institutions; and trends in cash and currency usage and technology.
Learn about who we are, what we do and the Federal Reserve’s 100-year history from a member of our employee Fed Ambassador program.
