Augusta Tech President Dr. Jermaine Whirl appointed to Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta's Human Capital Advisory Council

Thursday, August 12th, 2021

Dr. Jermaine Whirl, Augusta Technical
College’s president, has been tapped to
serve a three-year term on Federal
Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Human
Capital Advisory Council. The Federal
Reserve Bank of Atlanta is part of the
central bank of the United States. The
Federal Reserve System—the Fed, as it is
often called—consists of twelve Reserve
Banks located around the country and the Board of Governors in Washington,
D.C. The Atlanta Fed territory covers the Sixth Federal Reserve District, which includes Alabama, Florida, and Georgia, and portions of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee.

The Human Capital Advisory Council assists in the Bank’s assessment of both short- term fluctuations and long-term structural issues related to labor markets, as well as human capital development and its impact on economic vitality, and ultimately, its monetary policy deliberations. The Council also provides an important channel of communication between the Bank and key constituents in the Sixth Federal Reserve District business community.

The Human Capital Advisory Council is composed of 8-16 senior level executives with extensive industry knowledge and ability, selected from within the Sixth District and representing a variety of industries and human capital development.

“I’m honored to be selected to serve on this important council and bring insights from technical & community colleges whose mission is workforce development.” Dr. Whirl said. “The Sixth District’s ability to grow and prosper over the next decade is directly connected to our labor force participation rates, post-secondary credential attainment, and citizens who are committed to lifelong learning.”\
