Time: 5:00 to 6:00 pm

Jelena McWilliams was sworn in as the 21st Chairman of the FDIC on June 5, 2018. She brings a unique wealth of experience as a banking executive, Chief Counsel of the Senate Banking Committee staff, an attorney at the Federal Reserve and a private practitioner. She has assumed the role of Chairman at a particularly formative period in the country’s financial history as technology and FinTech companies are challenging traditional financial services norms and redefining issues ranging from who should have access to the payments systems to the role of the Community Reinvestment Act.

Chairman McWilliams and Scalia Law Professor Thomas Vartanian will hold a broad-ranging discussion on the FDIC’s key role in coordinating U.S. financial policy and what we can expect in 2020.
