The Dodd-Frank Act was designed to offer a greater level of oversight to discourage high-risk behavior and prevent a repeat of the recent turmoil experienced in the financial markets. The panel discussion will examine the impact of the financial crisis and the legislative reaction to Dodd-Frank on the governance of financial institutions, including the increased risks of serving as a director or officer, and ways in which to mitigate those risks.

Following the discussion, Dr. Robert T. Parry, former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, will provide an insider’s perspective of the Federal Reserve, and its purpose, key functions, and role surrounding governance. Dr. Parry has served in leadership roles in several community and professional organizations. He currently is a director of PACCAR Inc. and Janus Capital Group Inc., and serves as the director of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
