CFPB Announces New Members for Advisory Councils

New York State Attorney General Letitia James urged the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) not to adopt its recently-proposed rule
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has announced membership changes to three of its Advisory Committees.
The agency presented a lineup of new members for its Consumer Advisory Board, Community Bank Advisory Council and Credit Union Advisory Council, which are designed to provide advice to the CFPB on a wide range of financial issues. In June, the CFPB generated controversy when Acting Director Mick Mulvaney dismissed the 25 members of the Consumer Advisory Board. All of the new board members will serve a one-year term.
"Today, I am appointing experts to the Bureau’s advisory committees who will bring a fresh perspective to our important work," said Mulvaney in a statement. "These experts are highly talented individuals in consumer finance markets, and we look forward to working closely with them throughout their service."
