Hosted Event  |  Debt Collection Dialogue: A conversation between government and business

Monday, June 15, 2015, 1:30–3 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

The Federal Trade Commission and the Office of the New York State Attorney General will host a “Debt Collection Dialogue” in Buffalo, NY, on June 15, 2015. FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection Director Jessica Rich and New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will deliver opening remarks; officials from the New York State Department of Financial Services and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will also make presentations.

The event will be the first of several Debt Collection Dialogues the FTC will hold around the country, including in Dallas and Atlanta (more details will be available this summer). At each event, the FTC and its state and federal law enforcement partners will discuss recent enforcement actions, consumer complaints about debt collection practices, and compliance issues. The speakers will welcome questions and comments from collection industry members and others who attend. All of the events will be free and open to the public.

“Debt Collection Dialogue – Buffalo” will be from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center at SUNY Buffalo State, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY.

We can no longer accept pre-registrations for the Buffalo event. On the afternoon of the event, we will admit those who have already pre-registered and then admit others on a first-come-first-served basis. We apologize for the inconvenience.
