NAPP Annual Meeting & Conference 2018

New and experienced professionals leave excited, inspired, and ready to take their practice to the next level.
Have you been wondering about the NAPP 22nd Annual Meeting and Conference in 2018? Save the date for July 18-21, 2018 in Alexandria, VA! 
Based on member feedback, we plan to bring back the Bolts & Nuts pre-program on Wednesday at a location close to USPTO.  The program is subject to further confirmation based on a minimum participation of 15 attendees.  The program will be limited to 30 attendees, facilitating hands-on experience and close interaction between experienced NAPP members and those who are new to patent prosecution and practice. Our own, David Dickerson and David Grossman, are starting to work on program content.
We are happy to report speaking acceptances from Peter Thurlow and Gene Quinn.
  • Peter Thurlow is a partner at Polsinelli. Pete is also a member of USPTO's Patent Public Advisory Committee (PPAC) and a current First Vice President of the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA).
  • Gene Quinn is a Patent Attorney and Editor and founder of IPWatchdog.com. Gene is also a principal lecturer in the PLI Patent Bar Review Course and an attorney with Widerman Malek
The AMC committee actively pursuing other speakers so more announcements are coming.
Please watch for additional conference and hotel information early next year.
Thank you and happy Holidays!
