About the Presentation:
Today’s credit executive has to be part mediator, part human resource administrator, part accountant, part sales, and part compliance officer.Whether extending credit from your desk or exchanging credit with your colleagues at a credit group meeting, the credit and financial executive must be cognizant of Antitrust Statutes and the effect adherence to or violation of can have on you and your company.The Antitrust Statutes haven’t changed in years.Yet, the meaning behind “Sherman Antitrust”, “Robinson-Patman” and “Clayton Act” remains foreign to many credit executives.
 
The concept that credit terms are equal to price is unfathomable to some credit grantors.And, the method by which most credit executives obtain and transmit credit information is changing on a daily basis. Your customers are changing.No longer does every customer consist of “brick and mortar”.Customers are demanding longer terms.Yet the Robinson-Patman Act encompasses price discrimination in the sales of physical goods of like grade or quality.
 
This program will cover the following topics:

● Understanding the Antitrust Statutes and Avoiding Antitrust Pitfalls

●Step by Step Guidelines to the “Meeting Competition” Defense”

●Credit Exchanges in a group setting or at your office that will protect your
company from antitrust violations
