TCPA Petition: FCC Opens CUNA’s Petition for Comment

Big news coming out of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) this afternoon!  The FCC opened CUNA’s Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) Petition for comment.  This comes only a week after CUNA’s Petition was filed -- we are grateful that the FCC has taken our concerns very seriously. 

Comments will be due in 30 days on November 6, 2017.  CUNA will be working to educate stakeholders about this petition and seeking support for our efforts to be able to better communicate with credit union members. 

Notably, the FCC’s comment submission is different than the financial services agencies credit unions usually contact. Because of the unique comment process and the importance of this petition, CUNA will be holding a webinar on Wednesday – October 11 at 3:00 PM ET.  The webinar will highlight the regulatory relief goals of the petition and how the comment process will work – Register Now!
