What Is The Aaa?

The American Arbitration Association is a private, nonprofit organization that provides guidance and rules for parties to follow in private arbitrations. It also maintains a list of qualified arbitrators with knowledge in specific areas. Although the AAA does nothing to render or enforce arbitration awards, it will assist in the process of arbitration hearings by, among other things, providing meeting places. The AAA`s primary office is in New York but it also has regional offices around the country.
