DO NOT CALL OFFICE GUIDELINES AND SUGGESTED OFFICE POLICY

Attached to this Memo is a suggested Office DO NOT CALL Policy published by CAR as well as a sample of the required Company Specific Do NOT Call List which each office should maintain. It is suggested that you personalize and then distribute this Company Do-Not-Call policy to all your agents and agents' assistants, if you do not already have a written Office Do Not Call Policy.

In a nutshell, agents and their assistants should not be making solicitation calls without first checking the Government Do-Not-Call List.

Please note that the use of auto dialers or robo calls is strictly prohibited with reference to cell phones whether or not the cell phone number is on the Do-Not-Call list.
These are serious issue as numerous lawsuits have been filed for violation of the Federal Do-Not- Call guidelines.

NOTICE:  The following is a sample policy for maintaining a do-not-call/ list strictly for C.A.R. members only.  You are responsible for determining whether it comports with your business practices and legal requirements.  You are strongly encouraged to seek the advice of an attorney or other professional for your particular situation.
