Since 1967, the Consumer Federation of America's Consumer Assembly has served as the consumer movement's principal meeting where consumer issues are reviewed, policy reforms are discussed, and new initiatives are presented. However, Consumer Assembly 2011 will have two new features:
· A special emphasis on consumer protection, financial services, and health and safety. For
each of these subjects, there will be at least two roundtable discussions and at least one general
· The roundtables will feature comments from a broader array of experts drawn from the
consumer movement, academia, government, and business.
General sessions will feature both keynote speakers and panel discussions of issues of broad consumer interest.
The conference will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 17th and conclude at 12:15 p.m. on Friday, March 18th. All those with an interest in consumer issues are invited to attend.
