Treasury announces next Fin Lit meeting
WASHINGTON (8/13/08)—The U.S. Treasury Department announced this week that it will conduct its fifteenth open meeting of its Financial Literacy and Education Commission (FLEC) on Sept. 16. FLEC is a 20-agency commission lead by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. It was created by Congress in 2003 to create a national strategy for financial education and the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) is represented among its members. Former NCUA Chairman JoAnn Johnson served as the head of the FLEC website subcommittee. New NCUA Chairman Michael Fryzel automatically becomes a FLEC member, but not necessarily head of the subcommittee. An agenda for the Sept. 16 meeting has not yet been made public, but Treausry did supply details in its Federal Register document published Monday of how to register to attend the meeting. It is to be held in the Cash Room at the Treasury Building. Use the resource link below to access the Federal Register announcement.
