The federal Financial Literacy and Education Commission will hold a public meeting 10:30 a.m. Sept. 22 in Washington.[@@]

The commission, an arm of the U.S. Treasury Department, will discuss its efforts to develop a national financial literacy strategy.

The commission has asked members of the public to tell it what questions the strategy should address, how existing resources could be used to address those issues and how the government ought to go about improving overall U.S. financial education and financial literacy.

Members of the public cannot speak at the meeting unless they have received permission to appear as guest presenters. The meeting room, the Cash Room at the U.S. Treasury Department building, has a capacity of only 80. For security reasons, members of the public who want to attend the meeting must provide their names, organizations, phone numbers, dates of birth, Social Security numbers and countries of citizenship by Sept. 15.
