Background on the Consumer Advisory Council
The Consumer Advisory Council was established in 1976 by the 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 services industry (15 USC 1691(b)).
