NEFE Co-Hosts Convening With CFPB

In April, NEFE and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) hosted an event for about 50 librarians, nonprofit leaders, government representatives and financial educators, including counselors, coaches and planners, to discuss financial education learning opportunities.

Topics included the CFPB’s Financial Education Exchange (FinEx) tools and resources for libraries and other financial education organizations; tactics for reaching “money avoiders,” such as consumers who avoid checking credit reports or opening bills; and research-based tools for use by financial coaches and other intermediaries working with consumers on financial issues.

NEFE Grants and Research Manager Mary Hoch presented on NEFE research findings on aging, cognitive decline and retirement decision making, and NEFE’s Senior Director of Strategic Programs and Alliances Brent Neiser presented tools for financial intermediaries and consumers. “This collaboration between NEFE and CFPB was an opportunity to gather financial educators and practitioners from across Colorado to explore relevant research and to share knowledge about what is working and what isn’t in financial education to meet the public’s changing needs,” says NEFE President and CEO Ted Beck.
