As participants in our meetings, we need to be mindful of the constraints of antitrust laws. There shall be no discussions of agreements or concerted actions that may restrain competition. This prohibition includes the exchange of information concerning individual prices, rates, coverages, market practices, claims settlement practices, or any other competitive aspect of an individual company’s operation. Each participant is obligated to speak up immediately for the purpose of preventing any discussion falling outside these bounds.
The following statement is included in the AMA's by-laws, which are posted on this site.
"The AMA supports anti-trust laws as defined and enforced by the Dept. of Justice. Antitrust means that there should be no discussion in regards to pricing among the members in any manner. If any member and/or Officer of the AMA hears of anyone having such discussions they will ask that they be stopped without delay."
