Economic inclusion panel set to meet May 24, FDIC announces

The federal bank deposit insurer’s Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion is scheduled to hold an open meeting May 24 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., according to a Federal Register notice Friday.

The notice from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) says the panel will “provide advice and recommendations on initiatives to expand access to banking services by underserved populations.”

Open to the public, the May 24 meeting is slated to include:

  • updates from committee members about key challenges facing their communities or organizations;
  • panel discussions on opportunities for agencies that administer government benefit programs to harness “bankable moments” as a successful approach to encourage unbanked households to join the banking system; and
  • presentations by banks and community-based organizations about programs designed to increase bank access.

The agenda is subject to change. See the notice for details on how to attend.
