SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 25, 2013, the President signed Executive Order 13646, creating the Council to help build the financial capability of young people at an early age, in schools, communities and the workplace. Having a basic understanding of money management at an early age will make our young people better equipped to tackle more complex financial decisions in their transition to adulthood, when critical decisions about financing higher education and saving for retirement can have lasting consequences for financial security. Strengthening the financial capability of our young people is an investment in our nation's economic prosperity. The Council is composed of three federal officials as well as 22 non-governmental members appointed by the President with relevant backgrounds, such as financial services, consumer protection, financial access, and education. 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 third meeting on March 3, 2015, at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, 1650 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20502, beginning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time.
