Financial literacy panel meets Oct. 6, will discuss COVID-19

The 20-member Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC), chaired by the Treasury secretary and including the heads of financial institution regulatory agencies and others, is set to hold an open meeting virtually Oct. 6 to discuss both the panel’s 2020 strategy and response to the COVID-19 emergency.

The notice for the meeting is on Treasury’s FLEC web page, which provides a link to the website of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), whose director is listed as commission vice chair, for registration. (The CFPB appears to be facilitating the meeting via Webex.) The meeting is slated to run from 9-10:30 a.m. ET.

The FLEC includes the heads of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency; Federal Reserve; the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.; Federal Emergency Management Agency; National Credit Union Administration; Securities and Exchange Commission; and numerous other federal offices, including the White House Domestic Policy Council.
