Finding common ground in Las Vegas

Throughout the Silver State, people are working every day to help Nevadans get ahead. Legal services attorneys, law enforcers and consumer advocates are working with residents on issues from changing their immigration status to protecting them from scams of all kinds.

On Monday, March 3, 2014, at the start of National Consumer Protection Week, Catherine Cortez Masto, Nevada’s state Attorney General, along with the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will bring those groups together for a day-long Common Ground Conference. The focus will be on the types of issues most often faced in Nevada: mortgage and foreclosure issues, small dollar loans and their collection, auto financing, and consumer protection issues in immigrant communities.

The Common Ground Conference is open to all those working on these consumer issues. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. in Council Chambers (2nd Floor), Las Vegas City Hall, 495 S. Main Street. The panel discussions of the issues mentioned above and the opportunities to share experiences and challenges will be interesting to be sure; the chance to build relationships and think about how the groups participating can better collaborate and share information and resources also promises long-lasting effects.

To pre-register for the conference, please email your name and affiliation to bburke@ftc.gov. CLE credit details will follow.
