The Federal Trade Commission and its regional partners in Dallas will host a free, virtual workshop on June 24, 2021, to discuss advertising and data security basics for small businesses, advertising professionals, and attorneys who advise them.
The Green Lights & Red Flags: FTC Rules of the Road for Business workshop will bring together Texas business owners, marketing executives, and attorneys with national and state legal experts to provide practical insights about how established consumer protection principles apply in today’s fast-paced marketplace.
Acting FTC Chairwoman Rebecca Kelly Slaughter will open the workshop, followed by discussions on truth-in-advertising law, social media marketing, consumer reviews, children’s online privacy, email marketing, data security basics, how to avoid business-to-business scams, and ethics issues for attorneys. The full agenda is available on the event page.
The free workshop will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time and will include a discussion of legal ethics from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Space is limited so those interested in attending the virtual event should register on the event page. A request for four hours of Continuing Legal Education credit for Texas attorneys is pending.
Green Lights & Red Flags is sponsored by the FTC, the American Advertising Federation of Dallas, the Better Business Bureau Serving North Central Texas, the Dallas Bar Association Antitrust & Trade Regulation Section, and Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law.
