Webcast eyes Telephone Consumer Protection Act rules
Dec. 27, 2013 – NAFCU's coming webcast on rule changes under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, now slated for Jan. 7, is covered by the association's webcast subscription package for both 2013 and 2014.
The “New Telephone Consumer Protection Act Rules” webcast was rescheduled from its original December date. The Jan. 7 webcast is set for 2 p.m. Eastern.
The changes to the rules implementing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act went into effect Oct. 16. The Federal Communications Commission made adjustments to further restrict telemarketing calls to mobile phones.
Marc Darnell, an attorney specializing in commercial litigation, will lead the webcast. He will discuss the prior written consent requirement, specifics of what constitutes a prior written consent, elimination of the established business relationship exemption and specific language that must be used in the consent agreement.
Key takeaways for credit union attendees include:
- an understanding of the new prior written consent requirement;
- what constitutes prior written consent and language that must be used in the consent agreement; and
- why the established business relationship exemption was eliminated.
NAFCU’s on-demand webcasts remain available for 12 months following the live broadcast.
