The meeting is open to the public and will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. ET in the FDIC's main building located at 550 17th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. The meeting also will be webcast live.

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's banks and savings associations, 5,406 as of December 31, 2018. It promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars—insured financial institutions fund its operations.
