MNLA has a number of active committees (listed below) which implement the programs and services of the association.  If you're interested in joining an MNLA committee, click here to fill out an application.

Anti-Trust POLICY

All committee members, task team members and anyone at any MNLA meetings should be aware of and must abide by the association's anti-trust policy as follows.All meeting participants take note of the antitrust compliance rules which must be strictly observed. Violation of the antitrust law is a serious matter, may involve a felony and jail sentence, and can create very serious problems for those concerned. The government has increased its scrutiny of meetings and its prosecution of small business operators. Prudence dictates extreme care in avoiding discussion of prohibited or questionable subjects. The following topics or subjects are outside the scope of permitted discussions. All participants should refrain from making remarks or references regarding the following:

  1. Current or future prices (the only safe policy is to avoid any mention whatsoever of prices - even of past prices).
  2. What constitutes a “fair” profit level.
  3. Possible increases or decreases of prices.
  4. Standardization or stabilization of prices.
  5. Pricing procedures, including wholesalers’ margins, markups, cost percentages, formulas or policies for arriving at prices, or brokers’ fees or commissions.
  6. Cash discounts.
  7. Credit terms.
  8. Allocation of markets.
  9. Other restraints on distribution or competition.
  10. Refusal to deal with a supplier because of its pricing or distribution practices.
  11. Whether or not the pricing practices of any industry member or supplier are unethical or constitute an unfair trade practice.
