Violating the law, whether unintentionally or intentionally, can have severe repercussions for associations and for the individuals involved. Familiarity with the boundaries of legal issues can be crucial in avoiding liabilities. Legal Risk Management for Associations helps associations to identify potential legal problems. The purpose of this book is to assist volunteers and employees of associations who hold positions of authority and responsibility for trade or professional associations. Specifically, Legal Risk Management for Associations offers guidance on how to effectively accomplish association goals and objectives without legal interference while avoiding violations of the law and protecting the association's future. Legal Risk Management for Associations is based on federal law, with an overview of legal risk avoidance for trade and professional associations -- whether they are large, medium, or small. This book does not attempt to offer legal advice for association management and administration. Six parts present issues concerning loyalty and conflicts of interest, antitrust, endorsements, accreditations, professional practice programs, business price and cost programs, employment, and association publishing activities -- including copyright issues. Although, Legal Risk Management for Associations is not intended as a substitute for the advice, judgement, and experience of association attorneys, readers will find it an indispendable guide to constructive decision-making.
