continue reading » NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger, along with other senior staff, will meet with Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Commissioner Mignon Clyburn today to discuss the adverse effects some Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) provisions have on the credit union industry.Also in attendance at today’s meeting: NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler, Director of Regulatory Affairs Alexander Monterrubio and Regulatory Affairs Counsel Ann Kossachev.In July 2015, the FCC released a declaratory ruling and order that provides limited robocall exemptions under the TCPA for financial institutions making free autodialed calls to consumers. NAFCU has repeatedly told the FCC that the order has led to financial institutions ceasing important communications with members about their accounts over fear of inadvertently violating the rule.In light of this, NAFCU has urged the FCC to clarify language in the TCPA in order to ease the compliance burden many credit unions face when trying to contact their members. While the association has commended the FCC for its efforts to crack down on illegal robocalls, its efforts to modernize the TCPA have only increased the potential for frivolous lawsuits and made it more difficult for credit unions to serve their members. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
The Salvation Army has even gotten extra help from some local businesses. If you are able to make a contribution to the Salvation Army, click here. Members of the Union Center Christian Church have also recently donated. “The homeless population, the helpless population, those who are down on their luck. Really anybody that needs our services we’re available to serve,” said Captain Joseph Hansen. Some of the businesses who have donated so far include Cracker Barrel, Ruby Tuesday, Traditions, Bimbos Bakeries. “We know that it’s impacting families who have lost jobs or have been laid off, so we know it’s impacted them but it’s nice to be able to give them a ray of hope in that we can be able to provide them with some food,” said Hansen. “We’re used to getting to know our clients, being with them, just getting to know them and showing them that they’re loved and they’re cared for,” said Hansen. “We couldn’t do this without the community support and we’ve had lots of restaurants step up to give us some produce and other foods so we could continue our mission,” said Hansen. “We’re always dependent on our donors to help us throughout the year. It’s really nothing new to us that the community would step up and really support us during a time when it’s the most needed,” said Hansen. Since the coronavirus pandemic, Hansen says the Salvation Army has seen three times more people walking through its doors. Despite serving more people, the organization has had to make changes and even some cuts to its programs– a reality that hurts. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Salvation Army of Binghamton’s mission is to meet human needs. That can be a little tough during this time, but its still doing everything it can. The organization helps some of the people who need it most in our area, mostly addressing food insecurity. It’s still operating its soup kitchen as takeout only and its food pantry is contactless.
