Military Consumer Protection Day
Military Consumer Protection Day (MCPD) is a joint initiative of the Federal Trade Commission, the Department of Defense, the U.S Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and other federal, state, and non-profit agencies designed to empower active duty and retired servicemembers, military families, veterans and civilians in the military community about consumer issues.
The first national Military Consumer Protection Day will take place Wednesday, July 17, at military installations across Arkansas (Camp Robinson, Little Rock Air Force Base, and Fort Chaffee). Representatives from the Attorney General’s Office will be on hand to answer consumer-related questions as well as offer information and resources to military service members.
In addition to the Attorney General’s staff, there will also be representatives from ARVets and the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service in attendance.
