  7. 7. Association activities are under the jurisdiction of federal and state antitrust laws. These laws regulate trade and commerce to prohibit unlawful restraints and to promote competition. NADRA requires that all its activities be conducted strictly in accordance with these laws. The most critical antitrust violation is the charge of price- fixing. Under the Sherman Act, members of associations are prohibited from reaching any understanding that affects the price of a product, regardless of the purpose of the understanding. For example, members should never discuss current or future prices, or what constitutes a fair profit level. However, it is permissible to discuss methods by which a company may become more profitable by acquiring better knowledge of its own costs, or summarizing effective methods of marketing or purchasing. Mere Attendance at a meeting where competitors discuss their prices is sufficient to imply involvement. If such a conversation should take place during a meeting, as a NADRA member, your recourse is to stand up and attempt to stop the discussion, explain the anti-trust issue and its consequences. If the dialog persists, state your objection to the discussion and leave the room. Anti-trust Statement:
