Engage with the TCPA’s Declaratory Order

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced its plans to issue a Declaratory Order on June 6 that would give telephone carriers the ability to block calls they suspect to be unwanted robocalls—without regard to whether the calls are being placed by a business with a pre-existing business relationship with the consumer and/or with the consumer’s express consent.  The Order would also give consumers the ability to block all calls to their mobile phones except those from numbers in their contact list.  We are concerned that, as a result, the proposed Order could significantly impede a credit union’s communication with its members and are actively engaging Congress, the FCC and others in efforts to reduce the harm this order could potentially cause.

Action Needed: please contact the FCC and urge them to address the many credit union concerns with their latest rule-making regarding telephone communication practices via this Action Alert!
