Education & Outreach

While OCP investigates and resolves individual consumer complaints it also actively educates the public on the rights and responsibilities of both consumers and merchants in the marketplace. 

As part of this consumer protection education function, our office provides speakers to consumer groups, community organizations, businesses and other civic associations.  Our speakers have vast experience and knowledge of consumer issues including regulatory issues, telemarketing scams, home improvements, auto buying and repair, scams targeting seniors, scams targeting small businesses and work at home schemes.  We would be happy to provide your organization with such a speaker and can tailor the speech around the needs and interests of your audience.

To request a speaker, please complete our Speaker Request Form.  For additional information, please contact OCP's Outreach and Education Manager, Maurice Valentine via phone at (240) 777-3740 or via email.
