'What does 'on hand' mean, is it the equivalent of being available to talk to the public?

Thank you.

Yes! Aditi and other FTC staff will be at the conference answering questions and giving out free consumer education resources.

WHY AARP CONFERENCE JUST IN NEVADA? REPLY: WHAT ABOUT A CONFERENCE IN SOUTH NEW JERSEY? I'M A 35 YEAR DIRECTOR IN A COUNTY CONSUMER PROTETCION OFFICE, WE DO NOT HAVE A BUDGET LINE TO INCLUDE TRAVEL ANYWHERE. PLEASE BE AWARE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF COUNTY & MUNICIPAL O`FFICES IN NJ PLUS A STATE OFFICE. WE COULD USE FACE-TO FACE CONTACT & NEED THE INFORMATION. THIS OFFICE PROVIDES OUTREACH INFO TO MANY MANY SENIORS. AS A LONGTIME AARP MEMBER I EXPECT YOU TO FOLLOW-THRU. RENEE (03JUN13).

Hi, Renee,

You might want to contact AARP directly with your concerns about where the annual conference is held.

Because you work in a consumer protection office, I thought you might find the resources on our Consumer Advocates page useful. We also have a website where you can order free publications for your office.
