CFPB Defanged: Be Careful What You Wish For

Wednesday, June 6, 2018 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET 

The CFPB’s guidance on dealer participation is on the brink of repeal, while its Office of Fair Lending was stripped of its enforcement powers. Acting Director Mick Mulvaney has also made clear the bureau will no longer “push the envelope.” But Hudson Cook LLP attorney Eric Johnson says, “Be careful what you wish for.” He joins F&I and Showroom’s Gregory Arroyo for part one of the magazine’s compliance webinar series to…

  • ID the 16 Attorneys General who’ve vowed to take up the embattled regulator’s torch
  • Analyze Acting Director Mick Mulvaney’s “no regulation by enforcement” approach
  • Examine the FTC’s possible role going forward
  • Provide an update on current challenges to Mulvaney’s directorship
  • Explain why F&I products aren’t out of the regulatory woods just yet

Tuesday, June 19, 2018 ● 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET 

Online reviews are the new word of mouth. They play a significant role in how car buyers ultimately find and choose your dealership. Dealers that want to separate themselves from the competition are placing more emphasis on collecting and managing online reviews on sites like Google and Facebook.

During this webinar, we will cover how online reviews improve discovery by boosting your local SEO ranking, drive traffic to your showroom, and finally influence purchase decisions.

Key takeaways include:

  • An understanding of how online reviews can directly impact revenue
  • How collecting more reviews will increase visibility on local search engine results pages
  • The best practices for collecting hundreds of new reviews for your dealership
