A Message from Acting Chair Rebecca Kelly Slaughter
A year ago when the ABA gathered (virtually) for Spring Meeting, we could not have anticipated the full scope of what was to come: loss, sickness, isolation and economic devastation for so many. Like most organizations, it has been more than a year since FTC staff came together in the office, had regular childcare, or enjoyed a true respite from the cares of work and home. Despite these incredible challenges, the talented and dedicated staff of our agency never wavered in their commitment to our missions of promoting competition and protecting consumers. Their resourcefulness and tenacity over the past year is reflected in the collection of important enforcement actions, policy initiatives and outreach efforts highlighted here—I’m incredibly proud of their work and grateful for the opportunity to serve as Acting Chair during this pivotal time.
