There is Still Time to Act: ACA Staff to Host Webinar on Filing Comments with the CFPB

ACA members interested in submitting comments to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in reference to amending the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act have less than a month to act. Thus, ACA International’s legal and advocacy team has scheduled a members-only, complimentary Hot Topic webinar to guide listeners through the process of filing comments. The webinar is scheduled for 1 p.m. Central Tuesday, Aug. 27.

Kari Barber, ACA’s corporate counsel, along with executives Leah Dempsey, vice president and senior counsel of federal advocacy, and Issa Moe, vice president, legal and general counsel, will lead the webinar and answer questions from members participating in the rulemaking process. ACA will also share its template for filing individual comments, provide information about where to find talking points, how to navigate the Federal Register and filing system, and make one last grassroots push for reaching out to Congress and the CFPB.

In just 45 minutes, ACA members will learn how a few easy steps can go a long way to advance the accounts receivable management industry’s advocacy with the CFPB and Congress.

ACA’s grassroots advocacy campaign, with options for members to submit comments on the proposed rule, is ongoing with the CFPB’s extension of the comment deadline to Sept. 18.

ACA appreciates the opportunity to continue to work with members, the industry and the bureau on an extended comment deadline for the proposed rule.

The response to the bureau needs continued input from the industry to show the current framework debt collectors use for calls, emails and text messages and the impact and unintended consequences the proposal may have on those communication methods designed to help consumers resolve their accounts.

Here is how you can file comments before the webinar:

  • Federal eRulemaking Portal: http://www.regulations.gov . Follow the instructions for submitting comments.
  • Email: 2019-NPRM-DebtCollection@cfpb.gov. Include Docket No. CFPB-2019-0022 or RIN 3170-AA41 in the subject line of the email.
