RENO, Nev. (6/17/14)--The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's new policy on transparency for meetings will make its debut Wednesday when its Consumer Advisory Board hosts a public session to discuss recent themes and trends in the mortgage market, as well as new resources available for consumers looking to purchase a home.
The meeting will be the first open-to-the-public for the Consumer Advisory Board, and the bureau will be applying its open approach to gatherings of its other advisory councils as well. The board and councils were established in 2012, and meetings are now being made open to the public in response to numerous requests from stakeholders, including the Credit Union National Association.
The Wednesday CAB meeting will feature remarks from CFPB Director Richard Cordray, Abhishek Agarwal, CFPB acting assistant director of mortgage markets and Brian Webster, CFPB program manager of mortgage markets and Margaret Anderson, CFPB product manager of consumer engagement.
It will be held at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Nev., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT). In addition to being open to the public, it will be streamed live online.
