CFSA Webinar: The Ongoing CFPB Threat

Hosted by Ballard Spahr LLP

Wednesday, May 31, 2017 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET

Please join Community Financial Services Association of America (CFSA) and Ballard Spahr for a complimentary webinar series to be held throughout 2017. This second webinar in a three-part series will explore the continued presence of the CFPB and its ongoing impact on the payday lending industry.

Despite the regulatory changes being initiated by the Trump administration, many of the recent executive orders do not reach independent agencies such as the CFPB. Thus, the CFPB threat will continue, at least for the short-term, as Director Cordray has emphasized that the CFPB is taking a "business as usual" approach towards its rulemaking, supervisory, and enforcement activities.

During this webinar, we will discuss what CFSA members should expect from the CFPB in 2017 as well as what role CFSA members can play as the Republican Congress considers various CFPB reform legislation.

What You Will Learn About:

  • Predictions about the Director Richard Cordray's future at the CFPB
  • An in-depth discussion about the CFPB proposed payday lending rules
  • Potential CFPB legislative reforms
