Bureau schedules meetings of ‘three Cs’ of advisory groups (consumers, credit unions, community banks)

Advisory committees on consumers, community banks and credit unions of the federal consumer financial protection agency will meet in the middle of next month, according to notices scheduled for publication Wednesday.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in separate notices in the Federal Register states that its Consumer Advisory Board (CAB), Community Bank Advisory Council (CBAC), and Credit Union Advisory Council (CUAC) will each meet concurrently on March 14 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. The meetings will be held at bureau headquarters (1700 G Street, NW, Washington, D.C.).

The three groups will each consider “policy issues related to financial technology and other trends and themes in consumer finance,” according to the notice published by the bureau – with (more specifically) the CUAC and CBAC in the morning session discussing the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) and consumer reporting trends, and the CAB in its morning meeting discussing digital identity and faster payments. The three groups meet jointly in the afternoon; no agenda items for that session have been released.
