NCUA to participate in 2011 NCPW
WASHINGTON (3/7/11)—The 13th annual National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW) began on Sunday and continues through the end of this week, and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) plans to join several federal, state and local governmental agencies and consumer protection organizations as a participant. NCUA plans to announce how it will observe the week later this week. The agency in previous years has joined federal agencies and consumer groups at Capitol Hill-based events. NCUA representatives and others answered questions and handed out materials to interested lawmakers and their staff. The NCPW aims to highlight consumer protection and education efforts around the country. The NCPW homepage notes that the members of Congress hold town halls and other outreach projects as part of the week. The NCPW website also features a blog where visitors can find resources and read stories about consumer protection. The blog allows visitors to connect directly with representatives of public and private consumer protection agencies, and highlights available resources and fraud and scam alerts. Credit unions, libraries, schools, colleges, city halls, and senior centers across the U.S. are participating in NCPW. Check out the event page on the NCPW website to find consumer protection fairs, shredathons or workshops in your area. The NCPW runs through March 12.
