The Federal Reserve Board chair is scheduled to deliver quarterly news conferences following the March, June, September and December meetings.
The FOMC next meets June 12-13, and four more times before the end of the year: July 31-Aug. 1, Sept. 25-26, Nov. 7-8 and Dec. 18-19.
Following its policy-setting meeting earlier this month, the FOMC left the federal funds target rate unchanged at a range of 1.5 to 1.75 percent, but it did indicate that it is on track for an interest rate hike in June.
