SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Consumer Advisory Council was 
established in 1976 at the direction of 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 U.S.C. 1691(b)). Under the Rules of 
Organization and Procedure of the Consumer Advisory Council (12 CFR 
267.3), members serve three-year terms that are staggered to provide 
the Council with continuity.
    New members will be selected for terms beginning January 1, 2008, 
to replace members whose terms expire in December 2007. The Board 
expects to announce its appointment of new members in early January. 
Nomination letters should include:
     A resume;
     Information about past and present positions held by the 
nominee, dates, and description of responsibilities;
     A description of special knowledge, interests, or 
experience related to community reinvestment, consumer protection 
regulations, consumer credit, or other consumer financial services;
     Full name, title, organization name, organization 
description for both the nominee and the nominator;
     Current address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers 
for both the nominee and the nominator; and
     Positions held in community organizations, and on councils 
and boards.
    Individuals may nominate themselves.
    The Board is interested in candidates who have familiarity with 
consumer financial services, community reinvestment, and consumer 
protection regulations, and who are willing to express their views. 
Candidates do not have to be experts on all levels of consumer 
financial services or community reinvestment, but they should possess 
some basic knowledge of the area. They must be able and willing to make 
the necessary time commitment to participate in conference calls, and 
prepare for and attend meetings three times a year (usually for two 
days, including committee meetings). The meetings are held at the 
Board's offices in Washington, DC. The Board pays travel expenses, 
lodging, and a nominal honorarium.
    In making the appointments, the Board will seek to complement the 
background of continuing Council members in terms of affiliation and 
geographic representation, and to ensure the representation of women 
and minority groups. The Board may consider prior years' nominees and 
does not limit consideration to individuals nominated by the public 
when making its selection.
