WASHINGTON (8/31/15)--There’s still time to register for tomorrow’s CUNA-hosted webinar on the recent ruling on the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) issued its ruling on the FCPA in July. The ruling contains several troublesome aspects, CUNA said.

CUNA staff will share frequently asked questions and efforts CUNA has made to clarify this ruling. Additionally, CUNA Mutual Group’s LOANLINER Compliance team will discuss document considerations.
Topics covered in the webinar include:
Registration is currently open for the webinar, which is scheduled to run from noon to 1:30 p.m. (ET) on Sept. 1.
