Associations, accreditation and certification organizations, and standard-setting bodies often work to promote practices that benefit consumers and increase competition. This session—part of a four-part online seminar series on association law essentials for nonlawyers—covers the fundamental elements of antitrust law and their implications for various association activities.

Gather the tips and tools your association needs to increase sensitivity to antitrust issues. Recognize how antitrust laws apply to standard setting, membership restrictions, tradeshows, codes of ethics, and discussions at meetings.

During this virtual program, you’ll have an opportunity to network with colleagues and gather tips and practical tools from association law experts that you can implement immediately at the office.

This online seminar features facilitated audio content and conversations. Before the session, registrants will receive login information and links to test their computer and become acquainted with the platform. Participants will have access to the recorded session, reference materials, and more for up to 30 days following the program.

Registration for this online program will close Tuesday, February 12, 2019, at 12:00 p.m. ET.

The full four-part series is also available for registration, or you may register for any of the other individual sessions:
