Bureau schedules ‘convening’ on debt relief next month

A day-long, public session on consumer debt relief will be held March 10 in Washington by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), according to a “save the date” notice on the bureau’s website.

This so-called “convening” is titled “Evolutions in Consumer Debt Relief.” The purpose: to “explore options for consumers facing unmanageable unsecured debt and limited credit options,” the notice states.

This meeting, slated to begin at 8 a.m. ET, will be held in the CFPB’s basement auditorium, 1700 G St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20552. It’s open to the public, and an RSVP will be required of those planning to attend. The bureau says space is limited and that registration information will be available in mid-February.
