We have all been reading about and hearing on the radio and TV news about the possibility of reducing the effectiveness of the Federal Trade Commission. We are fortunate to have the Regional Director, Dama Brown, as our July speaker. We can learn the latest on how Congress is treating this agency plus learn about all of the benefits the Federal Trade Commission offers to us as consumers. We can't have too much information or too many ways to protect ourselves in case of unfair action by others.
