The Federal Trade Commission and the Office of the Virginia Attorney General invite you to attend a Common Ground Conference in greater Richmond, Virginia. The goal is to find ways to work together to protect consumers in Virginia by collaborating and sharing information and resources.
We will discuss emerging consumer trends and how we can build partnerships to meet new and existing challenges in consumer protection. Moderated panels will focus on credit and debt issues affecting service members and their families, scams affecting older Americans and resources and tips to avoid them, and student loan debt. Speakers will include representatives from AARP and the Virginia Poverty Law Center, Virginia’s newly appointed Student Loan Advocate, and attorneys and advocates from the Office of the Virginia Attorney General and the Federal Trade Commission. A full agenda will be posted soon.
Free parking is available at the venue. If you wish to attend, please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/working-together-to-protect-virginia-consumers-a-common-ground-conference-registration-70767241725.
