SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 25, 2013, the President signed Executive Order 13646, creating the Council to help build the financial capability of young people from an early age, in schools, communities and the workplace. Understanding financial matters and making informed financial decisions help contribute to financial stability. The Council is composed of two ex-officio Federal officials and 22 non-governmental members appointed by the President with relevant backgrounds, such as financial services, consumer protection, financial access, and education. The Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has also been invited to participate as a member of the Council. The role of the Council is to advise the President and the Secretary of the Treasury on means to promote and enhance the financial capability of young Americans. In accordance with section 10(a) of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. 2 and the regulations thereunder, Louisa Quittman, Designated Federal Officer of the Council, has ordered publication of this notice that the Council will convene its first meeting on March 10, 2014, at the Department of Treasury, 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington DC, beginning at 9:00 a.m. EST.
