(PRWEB) August 16, 2018
Since the March 2018 ruling in ACA International v. FCC, judges have had mixed reactions to the interpretation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). In fact, courts have gone back and forth on previous rulings from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), leaving accounts receivable management (ARM) professionals uncertain about the guidelines, restrictions and scope of TCPA.
TCN, Inc. – a leading provider of cloud-based contact center technology for enterprises, contact centers, BPOs and collection agencies worldwide – is sponsoring a live webinar entitled, “How To Know What Is and Is Not Allowed Under the TCPA In Your Footprint.” The webinar will host a panel of compliance executives who will share their respective insights on how collection agencies can best determine what is and is not allowed under TCPA compliance.
This free webinar is a “must-attend event” for any collection agency making calls to individuals.
