Jeane M. Vidoni, president and CEO of Penn Community Bank, has been appointed by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors to serve as president of the national Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council.
The national CDIAC advises the board on the economy, lending conditions and other issues of interest to community depository institutions. Members are selected from representatives of commercial banks, thrift institutions and credit unions serving on local advisory councils at the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. CDIAC meets twice a year with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, D.C.
“In challenging economic times like these, it’s critical that local voices are heard at a national level. As community bankers, we are on the front lines of interacting with businesses, families and communities directly impacted by the Fed’s policy making process. I’m glad to be able to lend my voice to this discussion and help advocate for community banks and their customers across the nation,” said Vidoni.
“Similar to my time as chair of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s CDIAC, it is my goal as president of this national panel to elevate thoughts, ideas and concerns from our neighborhood financial services providers to the highest levels of power in Washington. Together, we can ensure robust dialog and inform effective policy at this critical time.”
Vidoni has been a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia’s CDIAC (Third Federal Reserve District) since 2016, serving as chair since 2020. In 2022, she served as vice president for the national council.
In addition to CDIAC, she is an active leader in the Pennsylvania business and financial community, donating her time and leadership talents to several industry groups, including as Pennsylvania Member Director on the board of directors for the Federal Home Loan Bank of Pittsburgh, which supports homeownership programs throughout Delaware, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Locally, Vidoni is a member of the Bucks County Workforce and Economic Development Board, past president of the board of directors for the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, member of the advisory council for Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, and on the board of directors for the United Way of Bucks County. A graduate of Muhlenberg College, she holds an MBA from Saint Joseph’s University.
