WASHINGTON (2/12/16)--A look at ways to measure financial well-being tops the agenda for the next scheduled meeting of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Consumer Advisory Board (CAB). Scheduled for Feb. 25 at the CFPB’s Washington, D.C., headquarters, the meeting will also include a discussion of the bureau’s strategic outlook.
The meeting is scheduled to run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (ET). It is open to the public, but an RSVP is required to attend. A recording of the event will be made available after the event.
Credit Union National Association staff will attend the meeting, and will provide an update on its Removing Barriers blog.
The CAB is a group of experts on topics such as consumer protection, community development, fair lending and underserved communities. The board informs the bureau of emerging practices and trends in the consumer finance industry.
The CFPB is accepting nominations for the CAB as well as its Credit Union Advisory Council, which advises the bureau on regulating financial products and services, and how it will affect credit unions.
Applications are due by Feb. 29, and new members will be announced in August.
