Clark Atlanta University announced that the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection has appointed CAU President Ronald A. Johnson, Ph. D as chair of the Consumer Advisory Board. The Bureau announced the induction of new experts from outside the federal government to the Consumer Advisory Board, Community Bank Advisory Council, and Credit Union Advisory Council. The three advisory committees provide advice to Bureau leadership on a broad range of consumer financial issues and emerging market trends.

Clark Atlanta University president Ronald A. Johnson will serve as board chair for the Consumer Advisory Board for the year 2018-2019.

In March 2018, the Bureau issued a notice in the Federal Register outlining the responsibilities of the advisory committees, as well as the duties of its members, and solicited applications for appointment.

The newly appointed members include experts in consumer protection, financial services, FinTech, community development, fair lending, civil rights, and consumer financial products and services as well as representatives of community banks and credit unions. Advisory committee membership reflects the expertise across the range of issues under the Bureau’s jurisdiction. New members to the Consumer Advisory Board, Community Bank Advisory Council, and Credit Union Advisory Council will serve a one-year term.
