The former clause protecting unfair competition stated in our MTNA Code of Ethics not only protected smaller businesses and individuals from unethical competition, but it encouraged participation in the organization. I completely disagree with the allegations made by the FTC in this matter and although the removal of this solicitation restriction will not be fought by MTNA, it has the potential to harm small businesses and individuals who teach without the resources of larger companies.
