Professional societies are subject to federal and state antitrust laws, and must constantly monitor their activities to ensure continued compliance with all antitrust regulations. This policy is published to: (1) inform the participants of the Enrolled Actuaries Meeting of the purpose of antitrust laws; (2) provide guidance to compliance at all meetings sponsored by the Academy and the Conference; and (3) emphasize the intent of the Academy and the Conference, through their Boards of Directors, to adhere to the law.
The Purpose of Antitrust Laws
The antitrust law prohibit any concerted activity or combination of competitors from interfering with free competition. In other words, the primary thrust of the law is to control private economic power by protecting competition. Persons and organizations are prohibited from engaging in any action which unreasonably restrains commerce or trade (i.e., competition). Per se violations (practices presumed to be inherently wrong regardless of the motivating factors) include: agreements to fix or stabilize prices, to divide markets, to allocate production, or to impose boycotts. In essence, any concerted action that significantly diminishes rivalry among competing firms.
