PITTSBURGH, May 24, 2024 /CSRwire/  - PNC Bank has expanded its national Community Advisory Council (CAC) with the addition of nine community development executives representing seven states from across the company’s footprint. The newly appointed members join 11 current PNC CAC representatives who bring a broad range of expertise in community investment lending and services, small business development and economic development.

Formed in 2022 to provide ongoing guidance in support of PNC's four-year, $88 billion Community Benefits Plan, the newly expanded group of nonprofit, community and business leaders gathers twice a year to advise the bank on critical issues impacting society and to help inform PNC’s community lending, investment and service priorities.

“Community Advisory Council members have been instrumental in the successful implementation of the Bank’s Community Benefit Plan, which has deployed nearly $56 billion in investments and loans to support communities nationwide since launching in 2022,” said Richard Bynum, PNC chief corporate responsibility officer. “The council’s newest advisory members give us an even greater opportunity to engage with the communities we serve and strengthen our impact in affordable housing and other areas of critical need.”
