Federal Reserve Bank to speak on Economic Outlook April 11

For the first time, the Center for International Business Advancement (CIBA), the Barton School of Business, the International Business Studies Association (IBSA) and the World Trade Council of Wichita (WTCouncil) welcome the Federal Reserve Bank to Wichita to speak on the Economic Outlook. The program featuring Dr. Nicholas Sly, vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, will take place at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 11 at the Wichita Country Club.

Few organizations are better positioned to speak on the Economic Outlook than the Fed. The Federal Reserve System is the United States central bank and promotes the effective operation of the U.S. economy (the largest and most complex in the world) and, more generally, the public interest. The Fed conducts the nation’s monetary policy to promote maximum employment, stable prices and moderate long-term interest rates in the U.S. economy. It also promotes the stability of the financial system and seeks to minimize and contain systemic risks through, among many other activities, active monitoring and engagement in the U.S. and abroad and fostering payments’ and settlements’ safety and efficiency through services to the banking industry and the U.S. government that facilitate U.S.-dollar transactions and payments.

Late registrations after April 8 or walk-ins will not be accepted.
