Federal and state law governing consumer credit counseling agencies continue to evolve and create potential pitfalls and new compliance requirements.  In response, the industry has responded with self regulation and many agencies limit their activities due to fear of crossing the lines set by regulators, law enforcement, and the Internal Revenue Service.  Has the law restricted services so much that consumers are being harmed, is your organization being held back, and are the requirements becoming too much?  Though the general legal and regulatory landscape is well known, myths still surround them. 

Learn the latest on federal and state laws and regulations affecting the credit counseling industry, including ways you can revitalize your organization and stay on top of the latest policy and regulatory changes within the industry.  From federal regulation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to state specific requirements for debt management plans, this session will feature the latest updates, insights and opportunities to ask questions.  This discussion will feature one of the industry's leading attorneys on the issues, and discuss the resulting outlook for consumers and the industry.
