The meeting will focus on trends and themes related to technology and access to financial services. According to the agenda, in addition to a general discussion of such trends and themes, there will be a separate discussion of technology and access to financial services and a separate discussion of technology and consumer engagement. The CFPB also plans to introduce the new appointees to the Consumer Advisory Board.
This past May, the CFPB announced that was ending its closed-door meeting policy for its four advisory groups and would open the meetings to the public. (In addition to the Consumer Advisory Board, those groups consist of the Community Bank Advisory Council, the Credit Union Advisory Council, and the Academic Research Council.)
