The Institute begins on Wednesday, March 9th, the evening that the NAAG Spring Meeting in DC concludes, and runs through noon on Friday, March 11. We reimburse up to $500 for transportation to our programs. We hope that our travel subsidy will enable many offices to send representatives to the NAAG meeting that otherwise would be unable to participate. We will cover hotel costs for Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Program opens with optional reception on Wednesday, March 9. Program sessions begin Thursday, March 10 at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 11. All meals will be provided during the program.

The program is intended to provide attendees with an enhanced understanding of the many new financial services issues over which state AGs will have new enforcement authority under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Session topics will include:

  • Money, Banking & Financial Institutions;
  • Overview of the Dodd-Frank Act;
  • Economics of Consumer Credit and Mortgage Markets;
  • Report on the Findings of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission;
  • Role of Securitization in Credit Markets;
  • Behavioral Economics at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and
