SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Consumer Advisory Council was established in 1976 at the direction of Congress to advise the Federal Reserve Board on the exercise of its duties under the Consumer Credit Protection Act and on other consumer related matters. The Council by law represents the interests both of consumers and of the financial community. Members serve three-year terms that are staggered to provide the Council with continuity. Twelve new members will be selected this year for terms beginning January 1, 1989, to replace members whose terms expire this year. Nominations should include the address and telephone number of the nominee, information about past and present positions held, and a description of special knowledge, interests or experience related to consumer credit or other consumer financial services. Persons may nominate themselves as well as other candidates. The Board is interested in candidates who are willing to express their viewpoints and who have some familiarity with consumer financial services. Candidates do not have to be experts on all levels of consumer financial services, but they should possess some basic knowledge of the area. In addition, they should be able to make the necessary time commitment to prepare for and attend meetings (usually two to three days long) three times a year and to take part in committee work. - 3 - In making the appointments, the Board will seek to complement the qualifications of continuing Council members in terms of affiliation and geographic representation, and to ensure the representation of women and minority groups. The Board expects to announce its selection of new members by year-end. The Council meets in Washington, D.C. Council members receive $100 per day for participating in meetings and for travel time.
