Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion to meet on unbanked, underbanked

The FDIC announced last week that the Advisory Committee on Economic Inclusion will meet this Wednesday to discuss result from the FDIC’s survey on the banking industry’s efforts to serve the unbanked and underbanked.

The biennial survey provides details on the methods employed by banks in targeting underserved populations through basic bank account features and activities.

The meeting, which will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., is open to the general public and will be held in the board room of the FDIC headquarters at 550 17th Street in Washington, D.C.

The FDIC board of directors approved the Advisory COmmittee on Economic Inclusion in November 2006 as a way for the FDIC to gather advice and recommendations on important initiatives focused on expanding access to banking services for underserviced consumers.
