Marketing Regulatory Compliance

Marketing materials - brochures, direct mail, print ads, websites and email - are an ever-expanding portion of a credit union’s operations. Regulatory bodies have recognized this, and apply a variety of rules and regulations to them. This presentation will help you learn how to comply with various Federal laws and regulations, cover unfair, deceptive or abusive acts and practices.

 Attendees have the opportunity to submit a marketing piece* to be reviewed prior to the session.
