Dear AIPPI-US Members and Friends,
The 2022 World Congress in San Francisco has now drawn to a close. By all accounts, it was a grand success and will go down in AIPPI history as as one of the most memorable Congresses. AIPPI-US had a very strong turn out at the Congress, fielding the largest delegation in attendance. With the palpable buzz created by the US-hosted Congress, I am also happy to report that AIPPI-US membership has increased by over 75% in the last two years. The vision of AIPPI-US serving as a vanguard group of internationally focused IP practitioners with the confines of AIPLA continues to come to fruition.
Looking ahead to the end of the month, the AIPPI-US Annual Meeting will be held in–person on Thursday, October 27, 2022 from 5-6pmET at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor Maryland, during the AIPLA Annual Meeting. Among other things, the agenda includes:
- State of AIPPI-US
- Recap of 2022 World Congress, including the 5 Resolutions
- Elections for next year's AIPPI-US leadership
- Preview of 2023 World Congress (Istanbul)
For those that cannot attend in person, please that there will be an “unofficial” remote feed via Zoom. Here is the Zoom link. Meeting ID, 161 699 2514, Passcode 428108.)
After the meeting and as customary, we will meet up and "clink glasses" to celebrate another successful year of AIPPI-US. Location is TBD.
