Join Us for the NCPW 2013 Congressional Fair!

During National Consumer Protection Week (NCPW), March 3 – 9, 2013, more than 60 federal, state, local government and nonpublic agencies will hold events and share information to help people nationwide make better-informed decisions and avoid scams.

As a prelude to the Week, nearly two dozen NCPW partners will gather on Capitol Hill on Thursday, February 28 for a Consumer Education Resources Fair.  They’ll showcase free resources Members can share with constituents to help them protect their privacy, manage their money, stay safe online, decipher advertising messages, and steer clear of fraud.

The Fair will be held in collaboration with Representatives Rubén Hinojosa (D-TX) and Steve Stivers (R-OH), co-chairs of the Financial & Economic Literacy Caucus.

The Fair is open to congressional staff and everyone interested in promoting healthy financial habits.  Whether you’re planning a town hall, blog article, mailing, or newsletter item, please visit us at the Fair, Thursday February 28 in the Rayburn Foyer between 9:30 and 11:30.
