Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of the CBAC is to advise the Bureau in the exercise of its functions under the federal consumer financial laws as they pertain to community banks with total assets of $10 billion or less. The CBAC shall advise generally on the Bureau’s regulation of consumer financial products or services provided by community banks and other topics assigned to it by the Director, as they relate to community banks. To carry out the committee’s purpose, the scope of its activities shall include providing information and analysis in support of recommendations to the Bureau. The output of committee meetings should serve to better inform the CFPB’s policy development, rulemaking, and engagement functions as they relate to community banks.
How is membership balanced?*The Director shall appoint the members of the CBAC. In appointing members to the committee, the Director shall seek to assemble representatives of community banks with diverse institution asset sizes and geographical backgrounds, and shall strive to have diversity in terms of points of view. Only bank or thrift employees (CEOs, compliance officers, government relations officials, etc.) will be considered for membership. Membership is limited to employees of community banks with total assets of $10 billion or less. Equal opportunity practices in accordance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) policies shall be followed in all appointments to the committee.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 3.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Bureau’s supervisory process provides an opportunity for learning and insight into the operations of large financial institutions; having no correlate for small depository financial institutions, the Bureau created this committee to facilitate a similar opportunity for community banks to share insights regarding operational and technical considerations, community banking industry business practices, and the unique needs of their customers and communities. This group also provides timely and pertinent information on how Bureau policies impact community banks.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are open to the public unless the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection agency head determines that items on the planned agenda are subject to the closed meeting provisions of the Government in Sunshine Act, 5 U.S.C.§552b(c). In the event of closed or partially-closed meetings, the committee will issue an annual report setting forth a summary of its activities and such related matters as would be informative to the public.
Recommendation RemarksOn December 18, 2015, Section 1013 of the Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010 (12 U.S.C. 5493) was amended to ensure applicability of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (“FACA”) to the Bureau’s advisory committees. This committee was re-established on March 27, 2017 in accordance with FACA provisions. On June 6, 2018, as part of the Bureau’s Stakeholder Outreach and Engagement initiative, the Bureau decided to re-constitute the advisory committees with smaller membership. This committee was re-constituted on September 7, 2018 with new committee members. This committee was renewed on March 21, 2019 in accordance with FACA provisions.

Number Of Recommendations CommentThe Community Bank Advisory Council advises the Bureau in the exercise of its functions under the federal consumer financial laws as they pertain to banks or thrifts with total assets of $10 billion or less. In FY2019 the committee did not convey any formal recommendations to the CFPB, but members provided information, analysis, and recommendations to the Bureau’s staff based on their perspectives as community bankers. This feedback is particularly valuable because the Bureau’s supervisory process does not offer an opportunity for learning and insight into operations of depository institutions with less than $10 billion in total assets. The committee facilitates an opportunity for community banks to share insights regarding operational and technical considerations, community banking industry practices, and the unique needs of community bank customers and communities.Access Agency WebsiteYes
