The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act requires the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to set up the Consumer Advisory Board (CAB). CAB members will provide the CFPB with information about emerging trends and practices in the financial-services and financial-products industries.
The CFPB is seeking members with diverse perspectives and innovative ideas. Nominees may have a background in one or more of the following areas: consumer protection, financial services, fair lending, civil rights, consumer financial products and services, or community development. If you or someone you know has appropriate expertise in any of these fields, submit a nomination letter and a complete resume/CV to CABnominations@cfpb.gov by March 30, 2012.
