CFPB Ombudsman’s Small Business Meeting in Chicago

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Ombudsman’s Office announced a small business forum taking place on June 18, 2019, in Chicago, IL. The Forum is an opportunity for stakeholders to share feedback on their interactions with the CFPB and provide recommended solutions.

According to the announcement, the Forum will feature a discussion of small business issues, including: “the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act (SBREFA) process, innovation, the CFPB’s small entity compliance guides, the process surrounding Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act, and the engagement of minority and women owned businesses with the CFPB.”

The Ombudsman's Office provides an independent, impartial, and confidential resource to informally assist individuals, companies, consumer and trade groups, and others in resolving process issues with the CFPB.

This meeting is intended for groups that advocate for small business, such as consumer groups and industry groups. RSVP information is forthcoming from the Bureau.
