ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Jan. 11, 2012) – National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Chairman Debbie Matz will host a free webinar with Richard Cordray, the first Presidentially appointed director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), on Wednesday, Feb. 8, at 3 p.m. EST.
“At NCUA we share CFPB’s commitment to protecting consumers, and we are honored that Director Cordray has accepted my invitation to participate in NCUA’s first virtual town hall meeting of 2012,” said Chairman Matz. “Credit union officials have expressed an extraordinary interest in CFPB’s regulatory priorities; they often ask me how CFPB will affect credit unions. This webinar will provide the first opportunity for credit unions to ask the CFPB leader directly.”
For her part, Matz plans to provide an update on NCUA’s Regulatory Modernization Initiative, corporate credit union resolution, and other current topics.
During the live webinar, participants will be able to type in questions about any topic relating to the credit union industry or the CFPB.
The webinar will be archived on NCUA’s website approximately two weeks after the event for those who cannot participate in the live session.
