Minnesota Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman is hosting the 5th annual Minnesota Financial Capability Roundtable on Tuesday, April 28 – featuring keynote speaker Richard Cordray, Director of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Congress established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010. The agency’s mission is to protect consumers in the financial marketplace. Cordray is the agency’s first director and previously served as the Attorney General and Treasurer of Ohio.
The Roundtable focuses on “financial capability” – the lifetime skills and attitudes that people need to achieve their financial goals, from kindergarten to retirement. This year’s event will showcase 10 organizations that are empowering and educating Minnesotans to build wealth and avoid falling victim to fraud and scams – including Ideal Student Credit Union, run by and for students at Oakdale’s Tartan High School.
Kicking off the Roundtable as special guests will be a first-grade class from Sand Creek Elementary School in Coon Rapids. The students, who are participating in a financial literacy program with United Educators Credit Union, will sing about “saving and spending.”
