CFPB advisory panels to hold May 1 public call on coronavirus impacts

All four advisory committees to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will meet publicly by conference call May 1 to discuss a single agenda item, “impacts on consumers related to the COVID-19 [coronavirus] pandemic,” according to notices scheduled to publish Thursday in the Federal Register.

The CFPB Academic Research Council (ARC), Consumer Advisory Board (CAB), Community Bank Advisory Council (CBAC), and Credit Union Advisory Council (CUAC) will meet from about 2:00 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. on that date, the notices state.

An agenda is scheduled to also be published Thursday on the bureau’s website. The F.R. notices also provide a link for members of the public to sign up to join the conference call (that link wasn’t active as of press time may not be until Thursday).

These advisory panels had been scheduled to meet last month to discuss the bureau’s unified regulatory agenda and general scope of authority but canceled.
