Brand Activation Legal Committee


The Brand Activation Legal Committee schedules a monthly one-hour presentation by a member firm to report on developments including Federal & State Regulatory Matters and Enforcement, Federal and State Legislation, Privacy, NAD/CARU, Litigation and I.P. and other relevant subjects. Each presenter has a PowerPoint presentation at the monthly meeting and it is loaded later on the website for download by members only. All members that have an interest in legal and regulatory issues are welcome.

This Committee is always interested in adding new members. If you would like to join this Committee to participate in any of these meetings, please send an email Ed Kabak, SVP, Legal at ekabak@ana.net
