New members join agency’s advisory panel on economic inclusion; first meeting is next week

Two new members will join the economic inclusion advisory committee to the federal bank deposit insurance agency when the panel meets next week, the agency said Friday.

In a release, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) said Ida Rademacher, vice president of the Aspen Institute and co-executive director of the Aspen Financial Security Program in Washington, D.C., and Marietta Rodriguez, president and CEO of NeighborWorks America, also in Washington, will join the economic inclusion panel when it meets Nov. 2 at 9 a.m. ET.

According to the FDIC, the panel (also known by the acronym ComE-IN) will discuss updates from committee members about key challenges facing their communities and organizations. Presentations will address the new, final Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rule, research informing the next FDIC multi-year economic inclusion strategic plan, and recent marketplace developments related to bank small-dollar lending programs.

The agency said the meeting will be webcast live via the Internet.
