The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Steve Antonakes will kick things off at lunch on October 2. Deputy Director Antonakes will talk about how the CFPB is changing the marketplace for consumers and shed light on the CFPB’s upcoming agenda, including prepaid debit cards, mobile banking, payday, and deposit advance products. Many of these products are being regulated at the federal level for the very first time.
That night, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan will accept the very first Scheinfeld Award from Woodstock Institute. The award honors an individual that displays the passion and commitment of Woodstock’s founders, Aaron and Sylvia Scheinfeld. Through her work on consumer protection, foreclosure prevention, fair lending, and other issues, Attorney General Madigan has secured billions of dollars in settlements and prevented countless individuals from financial hardship.
At breakfast on October 3, Julia Stasch, Vice President of U.S. Programs at the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, will talk about Getting Back to Basics: What do people need to function effectively in a complex world where challenges can overwhelm; inequality is growing; people are stuck: jobs are scarce; and education is not the pathway to success that it has been in the past.
Later that day, Dr. Fernando Torres-Gil, director of the Center for Policy Research on Aging and professor of social welfare and public policy at UCLA, will discuss a new paradigm for policies that promote financial security later in life, considering the challenges that large numbers of retiring baby boomers and an increasingly diverse population pose for the financial system.
