College of Central Bankers

On December 14, 2018, the Global Interdependence Center announced our College of Central Bankers initiative to further sustain and enhance our relationships with former leaders of the world’s central banks and theirs with the Global Interdependence Center.

GIC enjoys a long and trusted rapport with current and former leaders of central banks both in the US and across the globe. Through their  participation in our events, the GIC offers a distinguished, neutral platform for thought leadership on important macroeconomic and socially important topics – many in central banking and monetary policy.

 

Our 2020 members of the College of Central Bankers are:

These join existing Fellows of the College of Central Bankers:

  • Christian Noyer, Honorary Governor, Banque de France (2018)
  • Anthony Santomero, Former President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (2018)
  • William Poole, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute and Former President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis (2018)
  • Charles Plosser, Former President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia (2019)
  • Dennis Lockhart, Former President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta (2019)

 

The College of Central Bankers will continue to enhance GIC’s position as a leader in international dialogue and to further strengthen GIC’s connection to the central banking community. Examples of benefits for members of the GIC College of Central Bankers are:

  • The opportunity to conduct/publish research/comment on GIC platforms such as GIC’s website and social media
