AAI Year In Review 2018

To AAI’s Supporters:

I am pleased to report that in 2018, AAI implemented a diverse and high profile set of competition research, education, and advocacy initiatives. AAI’s multidisciplinary work is of exceptional quality and has demonstrated impact on antitrust enforcement and competition policy.

I invite you to take a look at our highlights from 2018. As you will see, this unique work is the reason why AAI remains the leader in focusing public and private competition enforcement priorities and shaping progressive competition policy.

We look forward to serving the public in 2019 as we extend important existing programs and take on new issues. Promoting competition that protects consumers, businesses, and society is more important than ever. The only way for AAI to fulfill its mission is through your support. So I ask you to please support the AAI in 2019 through a sponsorship or donation.

I look forward to another terrific year as AAI makes, with your help, further inroads and raises the profile of antitrust enforcement as a critical area of law and policy.
