Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen plans to skip the annual gathering of economists and policy makers in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, this year, a spokeswoman for the central bank in Washington said.

Yellen will participate in the Kansas City Fed’s symposium from time to time in the future as part of a speaking schedule that includes a variety of venues and events, the spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

This year’s gathering will look at inflation dynamics and monetary policy. The symposium will be held from Aug. 27 through Aug. 29.
