Economic Inclusion Advisory Committee
The 17-member Economic Inclusion Advisory Committee, created by Mayor Megan Barry in September 2016, serves as an effort to create a “Nashville Vision” that helps empower low- and middle-income Nashvillians towards financial inclusion.
The committee consists of three subgroups: financial literacy, financial empowerment and financial capability.
