The CFPB representatives who will be participating in the Chicago session of the 21st Annual Consumer Financial Services Institute, sponsored by the Practicing Law Institute, have now been confirmed.  The Chicago session will take place  on May 12-13, 2016.  (The New York City session was held on April 4-5, 2016 (with live webcasts and groupcasts in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Mechanicsburg, PA).)

As it did in New York, the Institute will feature a 2-hour program at the beginning of the first day titled “The CFPB Speaks: Recent and Upcoming Initiatives.”  I will moderate a panel discussion of four senior CFPB lawyers and two industry lawyers (one of whom will be my partner Chris Willis) who have extensive experience in dealing with the CFPB.

The CFPB panelists in Chicago will be:

  • Jeffrey Langer, Assistant Director for Installment Lending and Collections Markets
  • Peggy L. Twohig, Assistant Director for Supervision Policy
  • Paul Mondor, Managing Counsel, Office of Regulations
  • Jeff Ehrlich, Deputy Assistant Director, Office of Enforcement

The New York City session set an all-time attendance record for the Annual Institute with more than 500 people attending in person or watching online.  Since we are getting close to reaching capacity in Chicago, I encourage you to register soon.  For a complete description of the event and to register, visit PLI’s 21st Annual Consumer Financial Services Institute page.
