Opportunity to join the Congress Steering Committee
Congress 2015 was a great success. In order to make Congress 2016 even better, we need enthusiastic members with fresh, new ideas to help plan next year’s programme.
The committee will deliver a thoroughly modern Congress for the IP practitioner of today, providing in-depth CPD with an international theme, focused on global drafting, filing, prosecution and enforcement tactics.
CIPA staff lead the logistical side whilst committee members identify appropriate content and secure exciting speakers for the event. Members will need to take initiative in ensuring any speakers they are responsible for are fully briefed and firmed, and they will also need to seek out necessary marketing information about the speakers; for instance obtaining their bios.
In helping shape CIPA’s flagship event, committee members are offered a wonderful opportunity to grow their professional network and work with eminent speakers from across the globe. Active committee members may also attend Congress for free. In return, we ask for members who will take pride in delivering a quality event and who are committed and thorough in their approach.
If you are interested in joining the Congress Steering Committee, please contact the Chair, John Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications should include a brief outline of your qualifications, experience and one short suggestion of how Congress might be improved.
