Federal Trade Commission at 100 (FTC @ 100)

Happy 100th Birthday FTC!  

Earlier this morning I attended the FTC's 100th Anniversary Symposium.  You can read more about the day's festivities here.  

Lee Peeler, President of the Advertising Self-Regulatory Council (ASRC) did a great job for the industry and ERA on his panel (below) explaining the importance of industry self-regulation.  Our ERSP Self-Regulation Program is lucky to have such a strong advocate.

It's also nice to see that after 100 years the FTC finally has a great conference facility to host the consumer protection community for events in their new office building.  The old staff offices weren't so great for that.

So on behalf of ERA and the Direct Response industry happy 100th FTC!  

We look forward to working with you for 100 more to ensure that the nation''s consumers have adequate protection from bad actors.
