BCFP Sept. 27 advisory council discussions to stream live

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP, formerly known as CFPB) has allocated closed-discussion and open-discussion portions of its Sept. 27 meetings of three advisory bodies representing consumers and financial institutions, and the public sessions are to be streamed live, according to an agenda posted on the bureau’s website.

All three councils – the Consumer Advisory Board (CAB), Community Bank Advisory Council (CBAC), and Credit Union Advisory Council (CUAC) – are set to meet Sept. 27 at the bureau’s Washington, D.C., headquarters. Overall, the meetings will run from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. ET. From 9:30 a.m. to noon, these meetings will be closed to the public. Afternoon sessions, beginning at 1:30 p.m., will be streamed live.

Members of the public can attend these meetings in person but will need to RSVP (start here).

When the BCFP announced these meetings, it said only that each panel would be discussing policy issues related to financial technology. Specific topics have been added, as follows:

  • Credit Invisibles and Alternative Data: Opportunities to improve credit profiles; and
  • Utilizing technology to prevent and respond to elder financial abuse

Per usual, the meeting will feature remarks from BCFP leadership in addition to discussion with committee members.
