Get the latest on the Updated Advertising Rules 

In case you missed it, TREC adopted new advertising rules at their November meeting. We have been working hard to spread the word and make sure you know how to comply with the new requirements. 

The effective date of the new rules is May 15, 2018. We have published a full breakdown of the rule and how it effects you on our website. In addition, we hosted a Facebook Live Town Hall last month and had a great time answering your questions. We have also created an easy to understand info-graphic with just the basics for you to share with your offices.

From The Executive Director...

Happy New Year! It’s January and 2018 promises to be filled with important activity. Even numbered years are always a time when the agency must update our 5-Year Strategic Plan and so that means we will have some significant opportunities for additional targeted input from our license holders and the public on general topics and specific areas of current interest.  Look for a list of topics and a schedule of Listening Tour events to be published in February. 2018 is also the year for our quadrennial rule review so we will be looking for opportunities to cut additional “red tape” from our regulations during this period.
