Tom Hudson provides list for new compliance officers in Auto Dealer Today article

On June 24, Auto Dealer Today published Tom Hudson's article outlining a preliminary to-do list for newer dealership compliance officers. Tom's advice includes checking the following: FTC education materials on their website; federal laws that apply to advertising or marketing to customers via email or text messages; federal laws that apply to telephone sales activities; state ad laws that apply specifically to car dealers as well as those that apply to all retailers; and state laws that prohibit unfair and deceptive acts and practices. He also recommends utilizing your state dealer association and the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) to find more helpful information on advertising.
