Lindsey Governor Lindsey served on the Board of Governors for over five years, acting as Chairman of the Board's Consumer and Community Affairs Committee. A strong advocate of community development lending and investment activities, he also served as Chairman of the Board of the Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation.

Active in the Federal Reserve's Sixth District, Governor Lindsey generously devoted his time to touring redevelopment activities in many communities, most notably New Orleans and Atlanta, and he was a featured speaker at numerous conferences and seminars.
