Typical topics covered by Richmond Fed speakers include economic conditions both nationally and within the Fifth District as well as labor markets and state-local public finance development, among others. The Richmond Fed may also feature speakers within its Supervision, Regulation, and Credit departments to provide information to bankers on banking issues such as corporate governance and fraud. The Richmond Fed provides a form on its official website that allows community members to request specific speakers.
