Do you have a question about how the Federal Reserve System affects you as a business professional, community leader, student or consumer? Wondering about economic disparities, regulating big banks, or the Fed’s recent interest rate decisions?

On September 26, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari will discuss these topics and more in Billings at MSU-Billings’ Petro Hall.

Kashkari is a member of the Federal Open Market Committee, the body of the Federal Reserve System that sets national monetary policy.

Since taking over as president of the Minneapolis Fed in January 2016, he has spearheaded several initiatives, including releasing a plan to end the too big to fail problem and launching the Federal Reserve’s Opportunity & Inclusive Growth Institute, housed at the Minneapolis Fed. Doors for the program will open at 11:30 am, with opening remarks by Neel Kashkari beginning at 12 pm, followed by questions and answers at 12:15, ending at 1 pm. 

Free parking for attendees is available in the Virginia Lot (located on the corner of Virginia Lane and Rimrock Road on the west end of campus).
