This year, we will continue to respond to invitations to comment on enforcement policies proposed by competition and consumer protection worldwide and to support the work of the International Competition Network. We will participate in the FTC’s Hearings on Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century and further contribute to important policy debates through three existing special task forces – dominance divergence, national interest and competition law and procedural transparency – and a new task force on data issues.
The Section will also continue to contribute to increasing the knowledge and skills of our members through an amazing array of high-quality programming and publications, including our signature Spring Meeting, Fall Forum, Antitrust Journal, Antitrust Magazine and Antitrust Source, as well as our committee webinars and newsletters, our Global Seminar Series, and this year, Antitrust in the Americas.
Finally, if you are a member of the Section, I hope you will make an effort this year to promote the benefits of Section membership to others, particularly younger lawyers, and help to develop the Section leaders of the future.
