SAVE THE DATE: WIPLA's Members-Only Holiday Party will be on December 4th from 6-8pm at the Sofitel in Redwood City. Details and registration coming soon.
Dear WIPLA Members,
Get out your calendars and pens (or smartphones and thumbs) because the next few months are filled with fantastic WIPLA events, guaranteed to make even the most newly minted women intellectual property attorneys want to put down their latest issue of “New Matter,” and join in the fun.
It is true that July’s spa event will be a tough act to follow and I held back my suggestion that all future events be held in this manner, however, given the discussions at the fall planning meeting held last Friday, I am convinced that the upcoming events, such as the Book Review Discussion on October 23 and the Holiday party scheduled for December 4th, will be nothing short of fabulous. Some of the other events that were discussed at Friday’s planning meeting included the “Student Outreach” events, in which WIPLA members will travel to law school campuses and be available to answer questions about the organization. Volunteers are needed for this event which will provide a wonderful opportunity to gain some new members. We also discussed repeating some of the popular past events, such as the “Elimination of Bias in the Legal Profession” and “IP Year in Review: Trends and Developments.”
The Board and committee members were truly interested in what the new members had to say and they want to hear more, so keep your ideas coming. As a new member, I can’t wait to get out of the pool and get involved in some of these great upcoming fall events. I hope you’ll join us!
