ANTITRUST POLICY STATEMENT AND GUIDE FOR MEETING PARTICIPANTS

ASBA is a nonprofit association of builders or installers of tennis courts, running tracks, indoor synthetic sports surfaces, and natural and synthetic turf fields, manufacturers of products used in connection with the construction of such facilities, and other members engaged in businesses and professions which are related to the foregoing activities. The primary purpose of the Association is to promote quality construction of such sports facilities throughout the world.

The activities of the Association unavoidably bring together members who are competitors. The interaction between competitors which necessarily takes place in the context of trade association activities is strictly regulated by the antitrust laws of the United States which have as their principal purpose the fostering of competition in the marketplace.

ASBA unequivocally supports the policy of competition which is the object of the antitrust laws and adheres to a policy of strict conformity to the spirit and letter of the antitrust laws. Accordingly, the following subjects should never be discussed at meetings of the Association's members, directors or committees:

  1. Past, present or future prices.

  2. Fair, desirable or target profit or sales levels.

  3. Industry or individual pricing policies, changes or standardization.

  4. Credit, discount or warranty terms.

  5. Allocation of customers or markets.

  6. Whether a competitor's prices constitute unfair competition.

  7. Wage rates.

  8. Collective refusal to deal with any party because of pricing, distribution or competitive practices.

Any written materials to be distributed at Association meetings must be reviewed and approved in advance.
