Georgia’s on our mind – and if you have clients in the debt collection industry, it should be on yours, too. That’s because the FTC’s third Debt Collection Dialogue is set for Wednesday, November 18, 2015, in Atlanta. The FTC is hosting the event with the Office of the Georgia AG and Attorney General Sam Olens will set the stage with opening remarks at 1:00 PM.
The format for the half-day Atlanta event differs a bit from earlier Debt Collection Dialogues in Buffalo and Dallas. The first panel will explore debt collection regulation and law enforcement from the state perspective. In addition to industry voices, the panel will feature government representatives from Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. The second panel shifts the focus to the feds. Attendees will hear from the FTC, CFPB, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and speakers from the debt collection industry.
The Atlanta Debt Collection Dialogue, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Latin American Association, 2750 Buford Highway. Visit the event page for details about pre-registration. You can also submit questions via email to ask the panelists. We’ll get to as many of them as possible.
