FDIC state regulators advisory panel to meet March 18

The Advisory Committee of State Regulators for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) is slated to hold an open meeting March 18, with that meeting viewable by webcast only (out of an abundance of caution “related to current and potential coronavirus developments”).

The FDIC website shows the advisory committee was created in 2019 to provide advice and recommendations to the FDIC on a broad range of policy issues regarding the regulation of state-chartered financial institutions throughout the United States, including its territories. Members were named in February 2020, and the panel held its first meeting in October. It says the committee “will provide a forum where state regulators and the FDIC can discuss a variety of current and emerging issues that have potential implications regarding the regulation and supervision of state-chartered financial institutions.”

A Federal Register notice slated for Thursday said the March 18 meeting is set to run from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Further details on an agenda, beyond the overall aim of the panel, have not yet been provided.
