University Monetary Policy Symposium

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be Chairman of the Federal Reserve or a member of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC)?

You are invited to attend a special monetary policy symposium presented by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, in collaboration with the department of economics at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB), and the University of the Pacific (UOP).

The university symposium is a half-day event held on campus, at no cost to participants. Representatives from the Federal Reserve (Fed) will be in attendance to conduct the symposium, which included engaging presentations from Fed staff on the purposes and functions of the Federal Reserve System (FRS), banking supervision, and regulation, and the conduct of monetary policy. The university symposium concludes with a current economics outlook presented by a Fed economist, followed by a real-time Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) simulation with trained CSULB and UOP students and voting on monetary policy and the target federal funds interest rate (the instrument of U.S. monetary policy).

Place: The Pointe, Walter D. Pyramid

Date: Friday, April 13

Time: 1:00 PM – 5:30 PM
