The Code requires the following of all individuals attending AFPM meetings and forums:

• Strict compliance with antitrust laws.
• Adherence to all applicable federal and state laws.

• Assurance that conduct at all times and in all professional and personal dealings with each other and other attendees is with the highest level of integrity and courtesy.
