The three advisory panels to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) that represent community banks, credit unions, and consumers are set to meet Sept. 23 by conference call to discuss regulatory matters and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on consumers and financial markets.
The meeting is open to the public and will run from 1 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. ET.
Federal Register notices Monday detail the agenda as including discussion of “broad policy matters related to the Bureau’s Unified Regulatory Agenda and general scope of authority; including discussions on recent Bureau initiatives and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on consumers and financial markets.” The full agenda is set to publish on the agency’s website Sept. 22.
The impact of COVID-19 will also be discussed Sept. 24 during a call of the CFPB’s Academic Research Council. During this call, also open to the public, the ARC will “discuss research methodologies, assist with providing direction for consumer finance research at the Bureau, and discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on consumers and financial markets,” according to the meeting notice.
