Nonprofit Credentialing:
Compliance ABCs for Avoiding Antitrust Pitfalls
Recorded on February 17, 2015




Many nonprofits develop voluntary industry standards of practice and codes of ethics. But they don’t always know how to “FTC-proof” them.

If your organization lacks in-house antitrust expertise, the way these documents are written and enforced could easily lead to violations and nightmare involvement with the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice.

Don’t risk landing in court and out of compliance: get the know-how you need to defuse potential antitrust liability now.

Register Now for Nonprofit Credentialing: Compliance ABCs for Avoiding Antitrust Pitfalls.
