PREPARING FOR THE CFPB: ARE YOU DOING ENOUGH TO PROTECT THE CONSUMER AND TO PROTECT YOUR ORGANIZATION?
Special Pre-Conference CFPB Workshop “Preparing for the CFPB – Are You Doing Enough to Protect the Consumer and to Protect Your Organization” will be held at the Collection and Recovery Solutions 2013 Conference on Wednesday, May 8, 2013. Special guest speakers will be Bob Belair, Partner at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, Bev Evancic, Vice President, of Resource Management Services, Inc. and Dave Felt, Former Federal Housing Finance Agency Deputy General Counsel.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is a new, independent agency established in 2010 by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. The CFPB has jurisdiction over virtually all consumer financial activities including credit issuance, debt buying, and debt collecting (whether for an originating creditor or a debt buyer). All service providers, including debt collection attorneys, are also covered.
The CFPB enjoys comprehensive and massive powers: supervision and examination; consumer complaint review and resolution; collection agency and debt buyer registration processing; rulemaking; and enforcement powers under the FDCPA, FCRA and all other federal consumer financial protection statutes with penalties of up to one million dollars per day. What's more, the CFPB budget is generous; guaranteed; and immune from congressional oversight.
This 3 1/2 hour workshop is designed to provide you with in-depth information you need in today's challenging environment for creditors, collection agencies/attorneys and debt buyers. The faculty for this working session includes Bob Belair of Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, Bev Evancic of Resource Management Services and Dave Felt, Former Federal Housing Finance Agency Deputy General Counsel. Understanding operational issues as well as compliance and legal issues, this team will walk you through:
- Understanding CFPB Supervision, Registration, Enforcement, the Larger Participant Rule and the Risk to Consumers Designation
- Interacting with the CFPB and Information Requests
- What to expect with an Examiner
- Dealing with Complaints and Establishing a Complaint Management Program
