The Federal Trade Commission has moved the second Debt Collection Dialogue, the “Dallas Dialogue,” to Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law on September 29, 2015. The FTC switched to this larger venue because the number of pre-registrations had almost reached the maximum for the previously scheduled venue. Pre-registration, which was closed on August 13, has been re-opened.
More information about the Dallas Dialogue, including how to pre-register and how to submit questions for the two panels in advance, is posted at www.ftc.gov/debtcollectiondialogue-dallas. The third Debt Collection Dialogue, in Atlanta, will begin at 1:30 p.m. on November 18 at the Latin American Association, 2750 Buford Highway. Information about the Atlanta event is available at www.ftc.gov/debtcollectiondialogue-atlanta. Both events are free and open to the public.
