CFPB Seeks Advisory Council Applications

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is requesting applications for positions on its various advisory panels. The Community Bank Advisory Council, which meets three times per year, is intended to provide the bureau feedback from banks with $10 billion or less in assets. Council members are generally named to two-year terms.

The CFPB is also seeking applicants for its Consumer Advisory Board, which advises the bureau on emerging trends and challenges related to consumer financial products and services. The board will also meet three times per year and is open to—among others—those with expertise in financial services as well as representatives of banks that primarily serve underserved communities. Board members are named to two-year terms.

Applications for the council and board open today and will be accepted through Feb. 27. New members will be announced in late summer. Read more and apply.
