Atlanta Fed 2003 Annual Report
Tells Grassroots Story

The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta—the Sixth Federal Reserve District—has been a part of the Southeast’s economic and financial system since 1914. To reflect the organization’s connection to the region, the bank’s 2003 annual report paints a picture of the Atlanta Fed with its foundations firmly planted in the states it serves. With the theme “Grassroots,” the report features the many roles the Atlanta Fed plays in the Sixth Federal Reserve District: among them, analyzing the economy of the Southeast, supervising certain types of financial institutions, and managing change in the payments arena. At the same time, the report examines the changing nature of the Southeastern economy itself.

The goal of the 2003 annual report, as Atlanta Fed president Jack Guynn says in his introductory letter, is to demonstrate that “the inherent advantages in our regional structure continue to support our ability to fulfill our core responsibilities.” Using images that illustrate both the theme and the geography of the region, the annual report narrative focuses on the way the Atlanta Fed carries out the Federal Reserve’s three objectives—monetary policy, bank supervision and regulation, and payment services.

Through words and pictures the 2003 annual report emphasizes the value the Atlanta Fed places on the two-way flow of communication and the exchange of ideas among Atlanta Fed staff, bankers, and other stakeholders.
