Barter Industry Addresses North Carolina Bar Association

On April 15, representatives from the commercial barter industry will address the Ethics Committee of the North Carolina Bar Association regarding a proposal that would prohibit attorneys in that state from participating in barter exchanges. Industry leaders believe that such a negative stance, if adopted, could spread and cause problems for the entire commercial barter industry.

Ron Whitney, executive director of the International Reciprocal Trade Association (IRTA), will be arguing the matter in front of the Ethics Committee. Maurya Lane, founder and president of the Barter Business Exchange in Carey (NC), will accompany Whitney. Additionally, Gary Oshry, President of the National Association of Trade Exchanges (NATE), has written a letter to the North Carolina Bar in opposition to the proposed opinion.
